Cambodian Marketplace Stroll

An evening stroll through the streets of Siem Reap are filled with the hustle and bustle of the night markets.  The scents coming from open fire cooking are everywhere.  Fresh herbs and spices indicative to Southeast Asia fill the air. One in particular always caught my attention. I love the taste and the smell of lemongrass. Many of the hotels and restaurants burn lemongrass oil to keep the Mosquitos away but, also for it's clean refreshing scent.  Just a few drops of this essential oil heated over a flame fill an entire room.  I headed out to the Ta Pouk Village ceramics center to have some beautiful oil burners made for the store. Last time I brought some of the back they sold out in one weekend.
