S-21 Prison.

Today we walked to the Genocide Museum which is also the S-21 Prison where people were held before being transferred to the Killing Fields.
We had a really pleasant walk there in the sunshine, a lot longer than we thought but that wasn’t a problem as we stopped for ice cream and photos along the way.

There wasn’t much to do at the prison, but it was really sad because everyone that was killed had their photos taken before they entered and they were all lined up inside. It was devastating knowing all these people had their lives taken from them and many would still be alive today otherwise.

We then got a cheap tuk tuk back to the hotel where we narrowly missed the storm and spent the rest of the evening in the internet cafe watching the skies open and pour their entire contents onto our street.
