Stumbling off the bus, tired from the six hour trip from Siem Reap, we were met by the aggressiveness of Phnom Penh. “Here! Lady! Tuk- tuk! Only $1! Here!” multiplied by dozens of grasping hands, trying to grab luggage, trying to get our attention. They were behind a barrier, the kind used for parades to mark the route, the metal fences to separate crowds. As soon as all travelers disembarked from the bus, the barrier was removed and the hands that had been at a safe distance of inches were now upon me. “This way! Here! I take you! Special price. $1, just for you! This way, Lady! LADY!” I stood, paralyzed. Sometimes I’m just too tired to deal.
