"today they are pigs, tomorrow they will be pork" (explored)

Newer Older

This is a continuation of my series of street shots from Cambodia.

We were on our way to one of the many temples in Siem Reap and we see this very interesting sight on the roads. Our guide who was sitting next to us says "today they are pigs, but tomorrow they will be pork". Thats a funny statement but I'm sure its so much fun for those pigs who have been tied alive to the motorcycle and taken on a ride to the city.

There are many villages around Siem Reap and these are farmers who raise Pigs in their houses or farms and they come to the city to sell them to the restaurants for consumption. They apparently are not too well off to hire a van or a bigger vehicle to transport these pigs. So the best alternative is to tie them to their motorcycle and given them the ride of their life and most possibly the last ride of their lives.

This was definitely one of the more interesting things that I was able to capture during this trip. Hope you guys are enjoying you Sunday.

I hope many of you are staying safe indoors and not letting hurricane Irene bother you much. Thank you for your visit and comments.
