Cute but there is a lot better ways to spend your day. Ok. We stopped while traveling by on scooters and took pictures of it.

So laid back. Kep is amazing. Pic 2 is a reminder to wear your helmets on Moto's. Pic 1 was an impromptu invite to a Khmer party. So much fun. If you have the opportunity- go!
