Children at work in a small rural village outside of Siem Reap in Cambodia.

While driving through a small village I saw a group of children walking in a single file line carrying coconuts and I knew I had to stop to photograph them. They did their job quickly and in an efficient manner. In a matter of minutes they completed their task of taking the coconuts from a farm and loading them in the back of a truck to take to a local market.

When they were all done the group of kids (about fifteen of them) piled into the back of a pickup truck and waved goodbye to me as they went on to the next village to repeat the same task.

Wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas!

Check back for more of my adventures in Cambodia! One more photo in the comment section.

Happy Travels!
