Cambodia what?

Extra

I forgot to make a list of interesting facts we learned about Cambodia, so here it is 

-Police officers, and teachers make about $50 per month, and as a result there is lots of corruption
-hotel workers can make from $15 to $150 per month
-the currency is riel, but they prefer to be paid with US currency
-only 10% of the population has to pay income tax because the rest don't make enough 
-when you get a bill at a restaurant, the server stands to the side of the table and waits while you pay up (this is in Thailand as well)
-they get used cars shipped from the States, lots of 1996 toyota camrys around
-it only recently became law that scooter drivers had to wear helmets, passengers don't have too
- most people don't own a fridge and so they have to go to the market twice a day...every day
