Cambodian Cockle Cart

Hundreds of cockle-sellers trawl the streets of Phnom Penh. Most of the cockles sold are plain: only a small amount are covered with chilli, and as you can see even then, as the sun goes down, it is often the spicy ones that still remain.

I’m sure that if these were sold in Thailand almost all would be doused in chilli, but most Cambodians don’t have the same love-affair with hot-peppers as their neighbours.
