The Best and the Worst

I don’t mean to criticize either of these establishments in any way, I’m sure they try hard in the difficult field of junior education. The first is next to Wat Tuol Tom Pong, and its location, above a metal-works, seems far from ideal. This small factory produces cement-mixers, small cranes and other pieces of relatively heavy machinery. Seven days a week the noise from the angle-grinders, welders and hammering can be heard throughout the neighborhood, it’s hard to imagine what it might sound like from the floor above, perhaps they have industrial strength sound-proofing. The other school pictured, which has just had a makeover, is on Nehru Boulevard (Street 215), in the Psah Depo area, I have always had to admire its ambitious moniker.
