Default What is this.

Tell us what this about. What it is that he is processing. Where is he when this picture was taken. Give Country if you can. We were on board a ship touring this area.

It looks something like rice paper that he's rolling. My first guess would be Vietnam, or maybe Indonesia or the Philippines. I can tell you that it's clearly not a bigtime commercial operation.

I think it's a one man chamois factory in the Phillipines.

Well I could be wayyyy off, but he looks Cambodian to me. However, the bread looks like Chipati (Indian Griddle Fried Flat Bread). So I'm guessing it's a cambodian man making a flat bread, maybe there is a cambodian verision of Chipati.

We were in Pluket, Thailand on tour on a Rubber plantation. So the local is processing RUBBER. The next picture is bleeding a rubber tree. The last picgure is rubber hanging to be dried.

Take care,
