Creativity III

Bad road. Needs upgrade. Company here. Investment there. Cash needed. Let's toll the user.

In Mondulkiri there's a heavily visited waterfall. But there was a bad road. It was repaired and the comapany charges toll. Fair not?

Apparently not according to today's (February 25, 2007) Cambodia Daily. A deputy provincial govenor was left 'dumbfolded' after being charged 3.75 $US to use the road. Another deputy provincial govenor said:
'that he had not been formally notified of the system'.
The 'system' is apparently in place to charge tourists; everybody seems to be in agreement that these poor souls can face the full burden of this. What better solution than to charge outsiders for facilities mainly used by locals?
