I met this monk named Robert at Angkor Wat and talked with him for a while whilst watching the sun go down. He was a nice guy and was forever getting asked to pose for photo's. I snapped this one while he was posing for a Russian bird.

On the border of the beautiful Kirirom National Park in Kampong Speu province, this eco-tourist village, initially set up with support from Oxfam, through Mlup Baitong is now completely self-sustaining. A wonderful, friendly place to visit. Visit http://www.geocities.com/chambokcbet/ to find out more.
Established in May 1976, this former school became the primary security institution, specifically designed for the interrogation and extermination of anybody perceived to be ‘anti-Angkar’ (anti-state, or government). The conditions were appalling and the details of torture procedures hideous; entire families were exterminated simply because of their relationship to individual prisoners. The majority of guards were children aged between 10 to 15 years old, many of whom subsequently became victims. Originally a high school called Ponhea Yat, during its time as S-21 to 1978, it is estimated that 10,500 prisoners plus 2,000 children were killed by the KR regime at Tuol Sleng.
