2013, Day 37 - Laundry day

On our last day in Battambang we went to Kamping Puoy, one of the massive projects undertaken during the reign of the Khmer Rouge.  They constructed an impressive set of dams and in the process   thousands of people lost their lives to the merciless conditions in the forced labor camps.  Today it is a popular recreation site and as we explored we came upon this woman doing her laundry in the canal whose gentle flow is controlled by the dam.  All I could think as I watched her was how heavy those laundry baskets must be full of damp clothes.  It can't be an easy life but the setting is beautiful.
