Ailsa’s travel theme this week is ‘mask’.  Here’s her link

On this particular day a couple of years ago,  I was about to catch a bus from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap, when this masked man appeared at the bus door.

His piecing stare said, “Buy a pair of my glasses…please”.

So I did.  I bought a $5 pair of Ray-bans. Although I couldn’t see his mouth behind his mask, his eyes were smiling and I knew that my purchase had made him happy.

Oh and for the record, they lasted almost a week before they broke 🙂
