On the streets of Phnom Penh


Buddhist monks abound in and around Cambodia. Most every family has at least one son who has joined the order.

Despite their vows of poverty, most of the monks we saw seemed pretty well off. Many even had cell phones or digital cameras and were taking selfies like the rest of the tourists. (I do wonder where they post them though...). Photos taken in December 2016.


  1. Great and admirable photos!

  2. ...a sight that I see in Maui.

  3. Interesting street photos. I am surprised to hear that the monks have cell phones.

  4. Young people are the same all over the world.

  5. A different way of life. Probably more peaceful. I chatted this past weekend with members of a Buddhist charitable organization that does emergency relief work around the world.


Thanks for visiting. I love hearing from you.
