Kep, Cambodia – the Crab Market

6/18 – About two km walk along the beach from our hotel is the famous Kep Crab Market. The walk was breathtakingly beautiful. 

    Here’s the crab market – a conglomerate of shacks right at the water’s edge.. 

  There were lots of squid, flatfish and shrimp for sale, in addition to crabs cooked any way you like. 

  

Look at the lady on the right – it looks like she is dressed for a blizzard, although it is 100 degrees.  And she is standing in front of a hot grill!

    

We watched the crab pots being hauled in, and the sellers haggling for the best crabs. 

     

We had lunch at one of the little restaurants, looking right out on the water.  This time I remembered to take a picture of our crab with Kampot pepper sauce – before and after! 

   

On our walk home, we had a special treat.  A whole troop of monkeys met us on the road! 

         

A perfect end to our day!
