Tasty Dog in the Kingdom: This Cambodian Life #42. Delilah gives a rundown on some of the vehicles that you will find on your visit to Cambodia. In this episode, you can hear why you just might want to purchase a double seat in a public taxi, how to hail a mototaxi in Cambodia (the short answer, you don’t really need to, they find you), and how mototaxis are still your friend, even if you are wearing a skirt. At the end, you get a history of the Japanese Friendship Bridge given by a stewardess on the bus.
The music is something you’ve heard before, from Cambodia Rocks Volume 1, it’s the Ciclo song, very much in keeping with the transportation theme. If you listen carefully to his first couple of phrases, you get to hear how to say: Turn Left and Turn Right in Khmer, which is very useful on a motorbike taxi.
