another thought.. he has a sign written in khmer. Why not English? The average khmer has a lot less then the average English speaking person there or does that say more about me then about him?

This dude could work for a month or so and skate out of cambodia.. if that was his plan... work 1 month and do a runner.. instead he just begs khmer people for money? If there is not something that is missing from story, he is a dick

Just looks pathetic and an embarrassment to most of us

He should try Kalashnikovistan, it's right next to Persia
and they are famous for their hospitality to travelling strangers.

( if you like a bit of buggery, and he probably does)

Wherever the lowlife is coming from, what are the thoughts of these begpackers?

"Right, I'm now here, but I don't have (enough) money to travel to the next country, so you know what? I'll ask a local to write in the local language that I want to move on and need money for that to happen. Hey, I've been so extremely brave to come this far, I'm entitled to get money to travel on! It's a universal right, right?"

Is it thinking like that? I really cannot comprehend.
And ... at what point did it go wrong?
