Newcomers notice 3


A friend who used to live here said that he could tell how long someone had lived in Cambodia by how many people there had to be on a motorbike before they would make note of it. Four was the sign of a fairly recent arrival; five lasted a couple of years. My friend, who had been here for several years, was at the point where he only noticed six or more on a moto.

For a pic of this, see this week's Scene From My Life — the picture shows only five on a moto, and some of them are very small, so Katie Hisert probably hasn't been here all that long.
