Kampong Khleang is one of the largest settlements on the Tonle Sap Lake.  It is actually a Vietnamese settlement of floating houses.  On the way, we saw people making something along the road.  Mr. Sorn explained that it was people making sticky rice.  There were many little businesses and Dave chose one so we could get out and photograph what was going on.

Here is the series of photos I took.  We later had some to eat.  The rice was sticky and had a sweet taste. They also added beans to the mixture.  The young lady making the sticky rice was  very kind and accommodating.
