Sun is a friend when Cambodians prepare some foods

1There are in various countries sun-dried raisins, sun-dried tomatoes and plenty of food that some of us don’t think of as having been dried in the sun; in fact, we may not give a thought to how it got that way.  Peppercorns are one among many examples that leap to mind.

In Cambodia, they dry food in the sun as well.  What is a bit disconcerting, however, is going by it on the hot, dusty streets of Phnom Penh.  To be specific, the food is laid out next to passing vehicles.  Stray animals generally seem to keep their distance.  Insects, I’m not so sure.

As you can see in the photos, among the foods that I have walked by are fish, cooked rice, poultry and noodles.

In case you are wondering whether I partake of them, I have to report, no, not knowingly. Okay I lied: I have occasionally sampled homemade dried fish, which appears to be universally popular, though it has yet to win my affection.

Enjoy the photos!
