Are these people camping?
Yes. But not for fun.
Keeping looking for more lessons on rice, I found out in the area around Tonle Sap Great Lake that local residents normally have their rice harvest in March. Because they could not afford the daily transportation from home to farm to handle the crop, they must camp right on the spot, until the grains are ready to be taken home. Here they came as entire family: everyone at work in lieu of machinery. Many families gather at same time and temporarily live together, under poor tents with frame made by firewood, and covered by plastic sheet, sunshine or rain.
You have heard about the term "Cambodia poverty", and this snapshot shows you what that means in real life.
Please share with me. Thanks.

A very good daily life capture from cambodia. Very typical. Very details of the place and things around them. I feel like home when seeing this. Good sharpness. Sothy

Your picture even touched a native Cambodian: Sothy.
He gave us the confirmation of the photo value when saying "I feel like home when seeing this."
Thank you, Thanh.
Thank you, Sothy.
