poor sad old granny...

in my parent farm at Sandakan, Sabah on Borneo island, a home grown orchard chicken worth between RM30-150 (USD10-50) because many people use it for herbal soup making...

So far around 75% of the Cambodians I have asked say that I did NOT do the right thing.

So what did you have to do according to the Cambodians ?

Its better to just pay, walk away and dont think about it.

Dont find trouble in a land where you dont know 99% of the people there.

Seems to me that old Granny was being reasonable.
I would have paid her fair price, with a big "sorry".
And absolutely wanted to stay for Cambodian chicken dinner....

Totally agree. Some in this region treat their livestock similar to pet, a little bit like the respect because the livestock is their food resources.

I would give the lady the "bird" (middle finger) and ride off. Just because you're a foreigner in a foreign place doesn't give the old lady the right to not keep her chickens in a coop. I find flipping the middle finger and driving off into the sunset in a foreign country not only satisfying but yet a kodak moment. I just try to live my life like someone is taking a pic.
