Another hot and sunny day to start with. been to the Royal Palace and seen the Silver Pagoda - stunning buildings and beautiful carvings and peaceful atmosphere which was in stark contrast to the afternoon.

Tuc tuc to the former khmer rouge prison S-21 after lunch, and the somber exhibition with prisoners' photographs were very depressing. the prison was previously a high school with a playground in front - the sort of grey colour and damp ish building represented the story well. off to the killing fields south of Phnom Penh wandering was very difficult to imagine the inhumanity of the actions that took place there with sound of school children in the background - but the monument with the skulls of many of the victims was heart wrenching.
