The capital of Cambodia brought me into culture shock. I knew this was a poor country, but I didn't expect to see the poverty so prominently on the streets.

 

This monument was built to honor the victims of the Killing Fields.

Many of the victims of the Khmer Rouge.

The Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum. It was a school transformed into a prison during the genocide in the late 1970s.

There were many rooms like of this, of the countless number of victims.

Poverty is ever so prominent.

 

 

A visit to the Grand Palace was a welcome relief to the difficult historical sights of the city.
