Sun: Drying Food

Cambodian women go to great lengths to keep the sun off their skin, afraid of its darkening rays.  Different types of food are placed out in the sun everywhere, though, to dry them for preservation or just as a step in preparing them to be eaten.

Fish is the most common food seen out under the sun.

These trays on a trestle contain a type of banana being dried.


And then there are all the different foods I see drying on the street and sidewalks.  I usually have no idea what the foods are.
