Feb 17 fri - copper village of Koh Chen.

Left Phnom Penh up the Tonle Sap river to small copper village of Koh Chen.

Factories here make silverware, though one factory makes copper and plates it in silver (and also brassware which isn't plated). Silver plating seems to be drop the copper in a bath of sulphuric acid and some silver. Some old ladies in the village in their mid 70s. And visited a school where we talked in english to the younger school kids, 3 little girls particularly engaged with Kerry.
