Kampot Pepper FieldsApril 18 in Cambodia
About thirty kilometres southeast of the city are the pepper fields. It’s arid country, rocky, kind of hilly but still quite scenic if you like that sort of thing. You turn off the highway onto a gravel road thats really only wide enough for one vehicle, and a bunch of motorbikes. There’s lots of little farms, and little farmhouses, Cambodian style... cows, ducks, skinny chickens, water buffalo, and kids everywhere.
We think its the last day of the Khmer New Year, so people are all about playing pool, yes pool, water fights, which we partook in, and generally enjoying the last day of the holiday. A great place to take a girl on a date.
