Cambodia: pull-tab beer bottle top

Would you believe a pull-tab top on a bottle of local Angkor beer? Actually the pull remains attached to the top, with a sharp edge as a bonus. Because I like to start a trip in a developing country with a cut on my hand (not the first time :-)

Same brand, but it’s a small draft beer they sell for US$0.50 at the bars/restos in town.


Siem Reap: today’s outing (sunrise, temple, water village)

1. Sunrise at Angkor Wat (tip: bring a flashlight as it is still dark when you arrive and you have to walk into the large temple grounds). Btw, Angkor Wat and the other temples are truly amazing, and way bigger than I had imagined.
2. Bakong temple (in the Roluos Group, east of Siem Reap, whereas Angkor Wat and the main temple group are north of town)
3. Kompong Phlok (village on stilts near the lake edge – water is currently 4m higher than in dry season)

So I’m enjoying a tasty traditional Khmer spicy soup somloo mjour krueng (US$3.75 plus 0.50 for a draft beer- the US dollar is used here more than local currency in tourist areas) at the Khmer Family Restaurant on Pub St, and after asking for fresh chillis (which, in my defence, was pictured on tip of the soup) and I realized I hadn’t learned any Khmer words yet.
