A fantastic view of the vast flat farming land at Kampot, Cambodia. Most of these fields are used to grow vegetables that will be sold at the local market.
All of these fields are surrounded by small canals that will keep the land irrigated during the summer months and fill up again during the rainy season.
Local produce in Kampot includes Salt.
The salt is created by letting sea water flow into shallow man-made ponds. It’s then left in the sun until the water evaporates and the workers will labouriously scrap all the salt content and move it to a small warehouse close by. Not a job I’d enjoy under midday sun.
