As you can see from this photo, I'm reading a book called "Cambodia: Report from a stricken land"by Henry Kamm.
I have lived in the same house with the same person for a year now! To celebrate I’ll show you two types of typical houses in Cambodia.
These houses are called “Long Houses” ( bdair le veng). They are like terrace houses in Sydney. Tall, skinny and all joined together. I lived in one last year, not very good for air flow!
They are very common in Phnom Penh and more are being built everyday. I took these photos from the top of a shopping centre.
Another type of common house in Cambodia is a wooden house on stilts. Soeun grew up in a house like this. The floor of his house was made from bamboo slats, so the air could flow through. In hot season he used to put water on the floor at night to make it even cooler.
