>Sunday Scenery 006: Balloon-power

Posted by on Mar 15, 2009 in A Photo a Day, All things Khmer, Phnom Penh, sights, Sunday Scenery, transportation | 5 comments


Driving along on an almost empty road one Saturday afternoon, my husband and I were amused to see this moto ahead of us. Just a few meters away from the French Embassy was this giant balloon, almost obscuring the moto-dup (moto-taxi) from the view. My husband and I chuckled at the odd sight before us and it made us think that the huge balloon was providing energy/power for the moto-dup to run. Alternative energy? Hah. Only in Phnom Penh!
