Another Homeless Brit on Riverside in Phnom Penh, Cambodia Claiming To Have Lost Passport, Money, Etc (VIDEO)

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Some comments about this video on Facebook, and I don't know why, but the first one cracks me up:

"They take my money take my passport take my past tense.





He is a junkie, walks past my house once a week, use to give him money, then when changed to food, he refused it.
"
"Life is too important to take seriously."

"Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh."

When we take visitors from overseas out to the zoo (which, admittedly, has lost it's charm for us) we prepare for Beggars Lane by making up bags of rice for the visitors to give to the beggars, and then we tell them to watch the responses they get as they hand them out. Instant lesson in responding to poverty in the developing world.
