Non-negotiable

img_79021

After getting settled in an apartment, we were quickly anxious to get out of it, so we took a day trip with our new friend Shabnam and her father to Koh Dach, Phnom Penh’s “Silk Island.”  This lovely lady wanted to know if we would like to buy a silk scarf. Her quiet smile threw a veil over our senses. We thought our skin was pretty thick from the constant haggling that had already become a way of life in Phnom Penh.  One look at this little lady and we knew it was hopeless to haggle.  Case closed for today, adorable wins.

  8. Awesome shots of this market place. A child’s smile is endearing in any language. I imagine you bought at least one scarf from her????
