We are now in Cambodia and its is pouring down. The journey across the Mekong Delta was good on the Vietnam side but in a very hot tin boat when got to Cambodia. Our guide took us to a mosque on the Mekong assuraring us that they were nice muslims not terrorists (very re-assured). Gave one of the kids a sweet who told every other kid in the Cham village and as a result had kids following us everywhere.
First day in Cambodia did not really do much but did go to a party at a pub called elsewhere. They had two policemen on the door and a swimming pool inside I think it was about half nine when first person went in stripped to underwear. Drunk too many white russians and that was our second day taken care off with a hangover.
So day three got up early and went on a very sobering visit to the killingfields and the S21 jail. It is one thing to know about the Khmer Rouge and Pol Pot another to be walking on the bones of his victims. The guide who had lived through the regime losing much of her own family spoke with clarity and emotion. The stupa on the site held over eight thousands skulls and you were close enough to touch them. The jail was where they tortured the people before sending them to the killing fields. In some rooms you could still see the blood stains and the small cells have been left exactly as they were found in 1979.
Went to the silver palace and pagoda but the heavens opened took shelter first in bar then this internet cafe. Rain looks like stopping so off now. Hopefully going to coast tomorrow.
