Money issues at Dey Krohom

At Dey Krohom too they were celebrating Chinese New Year yesterday. Like all the Chinese and Vietnamese in the world (and like many Cambodians: even Prime Minister Hun Sen acknowledged the fact by saying that when the Chinese celebrate New Year the Cambodians get drunk). Those from Dey Krohom burned fake money and hoped they would strike a better deal than the 7500$ which 7NG company is offering them for land which is worth much more than that.

  1. CHUC MUNG NAM MOI! JOhn :)))) (that’s vietnamese ;) )…

    i’ll burn some money tonight for u and for them (though, sadly, it wont be fake, but real)….

    this Dey Krohom story is powerful and interesting culmination (if there is one) to this landquest project…
