Final Photos (III) of Phnom Penh, Cambodia (October 16-18, 2008)

Phnom Penh from above
In addition to the tuk-tuk and motorcycle taxi popular elsewhere in Cambodia, Phnom Penh has the "cyclo" - a kind of bicycle-rickshaw that braves the crowded city streets alongside buses and trucks
Phnom Penh is lcoated at the confluence of the Tonle Sap and Mekong Rivers. Families gather on the riverbank at dusk to play soccer or watch the sunset.
All sorts of creepy crawlies to munch; I could only recognize about half of the things for sale!
The National Museum of Phnom Penh, opened in 1920 by King Sisowath, holds historical artifacts from across the country, including some of the best statuary from Angkor Wat Young monks pause to feed the fish in the courtyard of the National Museum
