Tourists or voyeurs? the truth about child labour in Cambodia

(Washington Post) Anlong Pi is a landfill just 30 kilometers from Siem Reap, the main tourist city of Cambodia. Each day tons of organic and inorganic waste arrive via large trucks that unload mountains of toxic compounds. The workers in the landfill collect recyclable materials like glass, paper and metal that may earn them as little as $1 a day. And when those trucks have finished their work, they will be succeeded by a procession of buses carrying tourists from different parts of the world who will stop, gaze, and perhaps take a photo or two before r-boarding and continuing on to their next site on the itinerary.
