Week 4 - An odd sight

CAMBODIA | Saturday, 15 February 2014 | Views [455]

Short note.. it’s a pity I didn’t get the camera out in time.

On the “moto” (imagine the lovechild between a motorbike and a scooter) riding down the dusty gravel road in front of us, I see a lady holding a pole upright with a black plastic bag attached to the top. I take a closer look thinking this is some kind of new street food that I haven’t seen yet and I should look out for it next time I’m at the market. “She must be holding it by its roasting skewer” I reason with myself. Lo and behold, I see a hospital drip bag inside the black plastic bag and a long plastic drip line running down the bamboo pole into either the lady or her kid in front.

Did I also mention there were four people on this bike, two adults sandwiching two kids?

Or that this lady with the drip was wearing hideously eye catching salmon and sky blue patterned pajamas and slippers?

Wish I had a photo to prove this. Maybe I can draw a picture one day..
