My three Push Pull co-workers (Leigh & Kongkea) and I were discussing our expenses at our village office today. Since we just opened this office there are things we need to buy so that the weavers can work. Kongkea, who is Khmer, was running down the list of needs. His english is pretty good, but...
He says to Leigh and me, "I need money for a ho."
Leighs responds, "A what?"
Kongkea, "A ho."
Leigh and I give him a weird look.
Kongkea, "You know, a ho to bring the water from the well."
Leigh, "A ho-SE Kongkea. Ho is a bad word."
