Seeing the houses on the Tonlé Sap lake was an eye-opener, and while the boat that we were in slowly move further down, I kept looking around, trying to get a glimpse of their daily lives. Some were taking a nap on hammock, saw some stoves on the small little boat hut, there were boats going around selling vegetable and fruits, a small restaurant (which looks like it is for tourists), and kids playing on the water. There was even a school with basketball court!
If you take away the fact that all these are happening on the huge lake, this is just a village where the people live their day to day lives. Plus the girl with the snake, who smiled so sweetly and innocently that I could not help but snap a photo, and she turned to me to ask for a dollar after that!
