>Skywatch 003: The red earth

Posted by on Feb 20, 2009 in A Photo a Day, All things Khmer, Kep, rural, sights, Skywatch Friday, travel, Wordless Wednesday | 10 comments



A dirt road in rural Cambodia leading up to another, er, dirt road. Taken one summer day while, in the midst of a 40C temperature, we were on our way to have a meeting with our project beneficiaries. Riding on a moto-bike, we kept a respectable distance lest we be covered in a cloud of billowing red dust.
