Three things were on the itinerary for this day. One would prove pretty innocuous, the other two…. harrowing–to borrow the word from one of the other trip participants.
These are some of the buildings that make up the Royal Compound. I found the architecture quite beautiful. Sadly, some of the garden was slabbed over to save money. It created quite the heat sink.
Next we visited the killing fields, the genocide museum, and prison 21. It was a difficult….gut wrenching….deeply disturbing part of the itinerary. It was definitely important to go there, but I nearly broke down and cried. I would like to write about it, but I am still processing my thoughts. Also, typing on a phone makes it hard to get my thoughts out.
They allowed us to take pictures, but I couldn’t.
