Outside of many of the temples in the Angkor area, there are "landmine music" orchestras set up. They play music, sell CD's, and accept donations.
As an aside, the Cambodian government (or maybe Sokimex) has done a fantastic job of balancing the needs of beggars/sellers and the tourists. They are allowed on the sites, but only in certain areas. There is string in the dirt separating them from the tourists, and the guards strictly enforce these borders. So they will plead with you to buy their trinkets, but they can not physically get close to you.
I wasn't sure how to crop this one, or if I should at all, so I let it be. I like the children playing in the background and the man sitting under the tree - but maybe the band deserves a tighter crop, I'll post a WS. (and invite others to). What do you think?
Enhanced saturation a little bit.

There is so many moods and movement in this picture. It looks like a dream scene. Deep forest, music party and person with broken leg, an artificial leg, a ghost at deep left, baby angels playing in background; all this is just FANTASTIC. However, a person at left distracting my dream.
