You Must Not Cry At All

One of the first things we did during our visit to Cambodia was to tour the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum in Phnom Penh.  The site of the museum is a former school that was used by the Khmer Rouge, led by dictator Pol Pot, to imprison, torture and execute their own people from 1976 – [...]

The Party Place has cute, little cottages by the beach and even a “disco” (an empty hall with flashing, colored lights, and local music blasting).  They had [...]
