Road Signs

I have seen many rather amusing road signs and billboards in Cambodia, but this little gem that we spotted in Kampot a few weeks ago is pure gold. I will award something to the person with the most amusing caption. My first question was, why are they all wearing scarves if they are that close to the sun?



Also in the amusing photo category is this road sign on the highway to Siem Reap. It would appear that this highway (which, a cynic would point out is the route most travelled by tourists) has been the lucky beneficiary of the all new national road safety initiatives and funds. Not only are there speed humps (which most Land Cruisers seem to speed up for), ripple lines (ditto), but these nifty new road signs. Without wanting to delve too deeply into the realms of petty ex-pat intolerance/racism, the positioning of these road signs seemed to exhibit the customary Khmer foresight and critical thinking.

"Set the controls for the Heart of the Soul" is an apt title for this fine piece of art.

Notice how the men are riding the johnnies behind the women - very un-motolike behaviour...

Riding high on the rubber of love, perhaps?
