Here are several photos of different types of labor.
The first is a guy doing knife sharpening.
This process of making the rice pastry wrappings for springrolls is quite elaborate. I could not even begin to elaborate but it was fascinating. They are ladled out, cooked, dried, etc. and then they are taken across the street to another little shop where the fillings are put in and the springrolls are formed.
Fishing is a big industry in Cambodia. Here are a few photos of a fish factory where they sort fish, make fish paste and other fish items. Along the street in the section of town there are rows and rows of tables and boards where fish are laid to dry. The whole area including the street smells awful! Someone said you eventually get used to the smell. I did not.
A shop filled with engines and a worker posing for us.
Sewing machine sales and repair shop. I have a Brother sewing machine so this interested me. My machine is much newer than any I saw in this shop. It seems that most machines (sewing another others) are continually repaired. I did not think I saw anything new.
The ice factory was amazing. The action was very fast, looked mighty dangerous, and had some very young workers.
Below, the slabs of ice are being loaded onto a truck for delivery.
Another three machine shops. I do not know what this first guy was doing but it was impressive.
The rice factory was quite an elaborate operations. I was particularly amused by how these guys used t-shirts as head protection!
