2012, Day 351 - Stained red

This is where we ended up on our day of travel misadventure near Cambodia's east coast.  We started out from Kampot, drove to Kep, went in search of the famous Kampot pepper plantations and ended up a stone's throw from the border with Vietnam.  Paved roads gave way to red clay and we sat in the car while I driver asked for directions.  Every time a truck passed massive clouds of fine red dust were thrown into the air and visibility was reduces to a few feet.  All the while this gentleman stood at the mouth of a side street selling his snacks.  I can only imagine they were a bit earthy and I don't recall anyone stopping but I am sure he stood out there all day or until his pot was emptied.  In retrospect I would have liked to have gone exploring but we were on a mission that, sadly, we ultimately aborted but which we achieved the following day...
