Cambodia’s royal oxen eat corn during the annual ploughing ceremony in Phnom Penh May 23, 2008. The oxen have to choose between seven bowls including rice, corn, green beans, grass, sesame, water and wine to predict the future of the farming season. The tradition, which is hundreds of years old, is followed closely by the nation’s estimated 14 million people, the majority of whom are farmers.
