Visual pollution: I love it…

For sure Phnom Penh is not Switzerland… What a messy blessing…

Working on a multimedia slideshow for Ka-set on the streets of PPenh. Some time end of next week? (Story Nr VIJ2009014).

Tomorrow Khieu Samphan pre-trial hearing. Jacques Vergès, his lawyer, should be there.

This WE: Kep. No Internet. Monday and tuesday working on Kampot pepper harvest.

  2. It’s for Lux soap…

    Tarantula’s? I don’t have to, right? They are hairy but most of all the oil they are fried in has boiled many many times. So these animals taste like stale oil.

  3. wow, what a crazy billboard…i see that Lux shine all the way across the ocean ;))…as for the Tarantulas, no, you do not have to….funny, when she wrote me, i had this image of you dining on them…i guess not quite Frites Belgique ;)))

    Richard tried them (Arantxa resisted)…i’ll eat anything…but…well, maybe not dark, hairy things…….or stale oil….

    more billboard pics please (remember Ruscha ;)) )…
