DSC01906

The Killing Fields in Phnom Penh are probably the most depressing place to visit in Cambodia. The realisation that mass killing of their own people went on not that long ago. Knowing that it was only 40 odd years ago it gives the place a certain edge. You can walk around past the mass graves […]
