That said, the locals also shake their heads when encountering a foreigner from nearby. Take for instance the traffic: a foreigner seldomly cuts a corner and prefers to walk despite the sidewalks put there for use as an extended shop/restaurant/parking space or impromptu marketplace. Or all in the same go. Well, there you have it, even Crossing Cambodia is guilty of using persuasive arguments to frame the locals into the not 100% box!
Anyway, the true crazy are the Falang as you can clearly deduce from this news item delved up from khmernews.com. Possibly filing this under the 'Security' section is not totally correct.
