The Gas Station

The Gas Station             Siem Reap, Cambodia

Imagine my surprise, when on the way to Siem Reap, my tuk-tuk driver pulled over near what I assumed was a drink cart on the side of the road, bought a glass Coke bottle filled with yellow liquid, and started pouring it into his gas tank! 

After emptying the bottle, of what I assumed was fuel, he handed it back to the ‘attendant’, smiled at me, and pulled the tuk-tuk back into the mess of traffic, leaving the unconventional gas station behind us.
