Yeah, It's Like That...

I was at a stop light in Phnom Penh and I was amused by a "professional" city worker. Some things I take for granted, like knowing that you water the ground next to a plant and not the leaves or the "above ground" parts of a plant.


This was the second tree I watched get "watered" I just sat there waiting to see the ground get watered. I suspect this is a reason the trees are withering there. The sad truth is, this speaks to the average education in Cambodia and what people are able to pass on to the next generation.

Hey, you've got to wash the dust off the tree too so it can breathe! I'll bet most of these workers didn't finish primary school so how would they know anyway. Neat video!
