last night there was a Huge storm.... it was crazy, all the roads were water logged a the thunder and lighning ws constant!! Very scary!! This morning i met up the german couple who i'd met in Siem Reap. We hired a Tuc tuc for the day to take us road for to see some things! First we went to the Killing Fields..... the roads there were all muddy so we had to walk some of the way cos the Tuc Tuc got stuck in the mud!! The killing field weren't very nice, there was still bones and clothes on the ground! There was a memorial there for everyone that was tortured and killed! There were thousands of skulls in a glass case.... they had been saved from the graves and put in the memorial. You could see holes and cracks in the skulls where they had been shot and beaten. Some bits were worse than others... there were two big trees... one was where they huge a huge speaker to drown out the noises of the prisoners being tortured and the other was where the children where beaten and killed. After walking round the field we went to S-21.... the school Pol Pot had turned in to a prison! It was nicked named 'the waiting room for death'! This was even worse.... the rooms still had the beds in that people ha been tortured in! The place was huge...... most of the room had pictures of everyone who had been captures.... (the Khmer Rouge took pictures of everyone as a record of who they had killed) There were also photos of the graves and people who hd died during the torturing! We had a guide to show us round who told us storrys about different things that happened! It was really sad walking around knowing what had happened in the rooms but it was good to see it!
On a lighter note....... after that we went to an orphnage called the light house children..... we brought a bag of rice and took it for the children.... it was so nice there was about 40 kids there and you can go and volunteer if you like!!
We stayed for a while and played with the kids i've got about 20 pictures that they drew for me! It was really cool!!
We went to the russian market next.... it was huge!!! I got lost.... suprise suprise! It started storming again (it still is now) and the market filled up with water in seconds... we had to waid through the water to get out!!
The roads were water logged it was mad everyone was rushing and people were falling of the motorbikes!
It was all go go go!!!!
