Photographer's Note

This is a continuation of my previous post. As I've told you before, there are lots of children around Angkor temples, and they try to sell all kinds of stuff. Usually they sell mineral water and cold drinks, with different kinds of souvenirs and t-shirts comming in close runner-up position. This girl surprised us though.

We were at Ta Prohm when sudden downpour occured. It was raining very heavily. Many tourists hastly left the temple, but some people, including us, remained hidden inside temple's corridors. After about 10 minutes of rain this girl suddenly approached us, appearing out of nowhere and carrying a bunch of plastic raincoats! She had around 20 of them and believe me, she sold them all in less than 5 minutes! Clever, ingenious, simply amazing. We were all under big impression. Asian people know how to do business, and they know it well right from the cradle.

Oh, and finally the price. Well, it could not have been any different. This is Angkor, so the price was one dollar!
