Wow, that barrel backpack is amazing.....Necessity is the mother of invention,
I know! I could haul a lot of stuff around with one of those.
The barrel is a neat idea - you can fill it up and nothing will get wet, PLUS, you can use it as a back rest! :)
I recently rode around siem reap on a rented bike...as far as i'm concerned it's the only way to see the city. much cleaner and safer than tuk tuk or moto...aren't the people of cambodia so incredible?
Cambodians are so nice! And a bicycle is a superior form of transportation. Did you get over to the Green Star at all? I'd love to hear more about your experience.
