... filmed a scene from the movie in part of the ruins. There were huge roots from massive trees climbing down and overtaking the crumbling walls. For lack of a better word, it was one of the coolest places I've ever seen. After our long day at Angkor Wat we went to the famous Pub Street for dinner and a beer at the local bar Angkor What!?

... not to imagine how the prisoners must have felt on this long journey from Tuol Sleng, knowing it was to be their last. We were both pretty quiet on the way there, thinking the same things. The tour was very sad but very well executed. It was an audio tour with lots of commentary from survivors and even Cambodians who had worked for the Khmer Rouge in the fields. There was a big lake and so I just sat and listen to some of the stories by the lake. Behind was the field ...
