Phnom Penh

While waiting for the bus to Siem Reap, in northeast Cambodia, we took in some sights and sounds of Phnom Penh. We were staying near the river, just a quick walk from the National Museum.

Another common sight: the bicycle tuk-tuk. I haven't taken one since I suspect walking would be about the same speed.
