Cambodia-unwritten / The stories I didn't write

The Khmer Rouge flag is for sale on eBay

I was surprised to find a never before used Khmer Rouge flag for sale on eBay. The flag was being offered by a California seller.

A few other strange items I found on eBay is Cambodia money being sold for several times their real value. For instance, 100 riel notes, which are worth less than 3 cents US, were sold for something like a dollar a piece.

Finally, none of the newspapers in Canada were interested in my story proposal of an ancient Cambodian statue, or rather the head of an ancient statue that was being offered on eBay by a seller in Canada. The sale of sculptures from ancient Angkor is actually illegal.
