Location: Phnom Penh, Cambodia

MapHi All

We arrived in Phnom Penh in Cambodia yesterday after an arduous bus journey! The countryside is littered with houses on stilts because of frequent flooding! A very poor but beautiful country!

Today we visited the King's palace and the museum in the morning. In the afternoon we had a very solemn time visiting the genocide museum and then the killing fields. A most extrodinary aternoon. It's shocking beyond belief what one human can do to another!

Tomorrow we are off to Siem Reap and to Ankhor Watt (the largest capital in the world in the 12th and 13th century).

We'll keep you all posted!
