I am a firm believer in being aware of the history of any country you are lucky enough to visit. For Cambodia, this meant the Khmer Rouge. Choeung Ek is a mass grave site about 20km south of Phnom Penh, one of the sites that is collectively referred to as ‘The Killing Fields’. It is estimated that around 17,000 people were murdered here, including women and children. This picture is of the memorial stupa in the grounds that contains some of the remains that were uncovered. The site has by no means been completely excavated - when walking around you often find yourself attempting to avoid bones and shreds of clothing that have risen to the surface. A chilling place, but highly recommended.
