Topics: Trinkets

Every Sunday there are a couple people who put down a tarp on a riverside sidewalk and then arrange a display of trinkets for people to peruse and buy.  They may make a little money but they also provide a drop-in center for people to come and admire and chat and enjoy a Sunday morning.  Click here to see some Sunday photos.

Topics: Money Changer Rates

Money changers are a fact of life in Cambodia where the U.S. dollar is legal currency along with the Cambodian riel.  Many workers, e.g., the Deaf Development Programme staff, are paid in dollars and then will change some or all of that to riel for small transactions.  The rates change daily and one must be observant to choose a money changer that gives a good rate.  Click here to look at the process.
