Merry-go-rounds, a ferris wheel and go-karts. Just about everything a kid could want

can be found at the Hun Sen Park east of the Independence monument. The fun park

starts up at 4pm and some days runs till midnight. Meng Shree, 42, who set up her

stand in 1992, says she makes about 20,000 riel a day, but on Sundays and feast days

takes in 40,000 riel. However she says she has to pay $100 a month to the city. Six-year-old

Ratanak was reluctant to abandon the merry-go-round when the Post visited. "I

like it very much," he said. Too much, said his father, Map: "I have to

take him here almost every week; if not he will cry for a long time."
