RCAF Market

28 08 2009

Went this morning to the RCAF (Royal Cambodian Armed Forces) market where they sell all sorts of armed forces style paraphernalia. I ended up buying a boonie hat for general wear in the sun and Rick from the Post bought some army style pants. Quite cheap too.

August 12 2009 – Santuk Silk Farm

15 08 2009

Now in Kompong Thom at the Santuk Silk Farm among other locales.

Run by Bud Gibbons, an American expat and his Khmer wife Nevin, the Santuk Silk Farm has been open since 2006. They are quite popular with tourists transiting through Kompong Thom.
I didn’t get a chance to meet Bud as he was in Phnom Penh but got a great tour from Nevin as she showed me the inner workings of their farm.
