Location: Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Mapwell merry xmas!! wouldn't really know it though. started off our xmas day by going to the Russian Markets, bought some cute little cambodia betel tins (typical cambodia souvenir). then we went to the S-21 museum, quite sad and depressing considering all of the torture that was carried out their only happened just over 30 years ago! there was loads and loads of pictures off all the people who were tortured and punished there. luckily we went to a yummy Khmer restaurant afterwards to actually half celebrate chrissy day... then went to the killing fields (via tuk tuk, one hell of a bumpy ride!!) this is where the people from S-21 were killed and burried in mass graves. the whole place is basically these huge holes in the ground... once again very very sad... there is a temple full of skulls there too. afterwards we went to the silver palace which was very beautiful and amazing. there is a buddha in there covered with diamonds. topped off our xmas day by going to the Frog&Parrot for fish chips and baked beans for din dins!! baked beans are somewhat amazing to me considering we dont have them in Okinawa!! tomorrow we're headed to Siem Reap...!!!
