MY RUSSIAN TWIN

PREVIOUS / NEXT

CAMBODIA by KRISS on 31 january 2017

MY RUSSIAN TWIN The strangest things happen sometimes and on the night before flying to Phu Quoc we were just walking around night market in Siem Reap.
A group of young men were playing with this plastic rocket they throw at each other like a ball and I didn’t play this time because I had broken one of the toy playing with another group in front of Angkor Wat the morning.

Anyways, we pass this bearded guy who is playing some strange instrument, kind of harmonica like and he’s got a small sign that says “to pay for my pass to visit the temples of Angkor”.
A backpacker with no money begging for a few dollars.
Well, nothing I haven’t seen before but suddenly I plunge my hand in my pocket and look at my own pass…

You see you have 2 kinds of pass, a daily one that costs $20 and a weekly one that costs $40 and let you visit the temples 3 times on any given day of the week, starting on the first day you get your pass pinched.
Mine had been pinched twice and there were still a couple of days left to use it.
I was leaving Siem Reap for the next 8 days so I wouldn’t use it anyways.

I stared at the man, ask a couple of Korean tourists if we looked alike and gave him my pass, with a piece of advice to trim his beard a bit.
I will probably never know if he did visit the temples after all, or if he just wanted some money to buy some booze but he seemed happy enough to get my pass for me to believe he made good use of it !

Oh and the photo is so crap because it was night time and I had left exposure compensation on -5 on the camera.
Thank you Nikon, thank you.
