Caught my eye, photos in Cambodia :)

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

that track is crystal clear saline water teaming with life,
with a couple of inches of fresh mangrove humus and stuff floating on top

Lots of us are illiterate in the Politically Correct World Dictionary.

Myself being number one illiterate!

My question is — is there really a telephone switch underneath that cover, or just sewage?
