    This photography reminds me my trip around Siem Reap area in Cambodia, where I had seen the same seen when local family of 4 was fishing in the muddy river bend trying to catch fish by building a dam from mud to stop them in the stream of water. This opened my eyes for the discrepancy in between poor and rich in our world. I really respect different cultures and their struggling with life in contradiction to our comfort and prosperity in Western Europe.
