Visited the Choeung Ek Genocidal Centre this morning. This was one of the many sites where the Khmer Rouge carried out atrocities against the Cambodian people from 1975 - 1979, under the paranoid Pol Pot regime. I have no words. It was a breathtaking, haunting, and overwhelmingly heartbreaking experience, that reminded me of how cruel we can be to each other.
@lawrence.jm and I took our happy faces and minds for a day trip out to Battambang. We trundled through the countryside on the bamboo train, climbed to the top of a mountain, and then witnessed the exodus of hundreds of thousands of bats from a cave.
