In Getting Started
But one of the big expenses is for an investment you can't save on school: transportation costs. Vutha is the only person in the family who has the ability to commute. Therefore, the transportation of children to and from school has become the biggest barrier for him to pursue international education and daily "internal migration" between the city center and the suburbs. In the beginning, he picked up his two children by motorcycle. The youngest daughter, 2.5 years old, stayed in the front childcare Image Manipulation Service sling, and the eldest daughter, 6, was tied to her father with a rope in the back seat. The traffic in Phnom Penh was congested, and each commute took an hour. It's a regular meal. However, a 2-year-old child can stand the toss of air pollution, rain soaking, and scorching sun exposure for 2 hours a day? Therefore, during the first school period, the children often fell ill. It goes without saying that the psychological and physical torment of a child’s illness is to parents. Needless to say, anyone with a child can understand it in seconds, not to mention the scarcity of basic medical care in Phnom Penh. However, $100 for gas per month and $30 for parking in urban areas take up 10 to 20 percent of a household's monthly income. The staggering gas bill is because the six-cylinder four-wheel drive car is too good at drinking gas. Vutha chose this car for work. He often needs to take reporters and NGO workers to remote rural areas for research, interviews, and services. This car can climb over potholes and mud.
