I've been lurching around, trying to think of something clever or at least interesting to say about Cambodia, but all I can think of is the Dead Kennedy's song Holiday in Cambodia.  (Can you hear the chorus:  Pol Pot, Pol Pot Pol Pot......?)

Turns out The Khmer Rouge, led by  the infamous Pol Pot, ran the show in Cambodia for only three years, although it must have felt a lot longer than that to those who lived through their rule.  During that time, it's estimated that one to three MILLION people were killed.   That's a big number.

  1. What a great postcard from Cambodia! Was this one you sent to yourself or was it sent to you? I think it would be so interesting to travel there.
