From the Tragic to the Ancient

In the fall of 2012 I traveled to Cambodia.  I saw a wide range of sights, but the ones that stood out the most were from the country’s past.  In the 1970s the Khmer Rouge was the ruling party in Cambodia.  They set up camps (such as The Killing Fields and S21) where many people were taken away from their families and many were killed.  Visiting these places is hard, but learning more about them is worth it.  On a much happier note, Cambodia is home to The Temples of Angkor Wat.  Visiting the temples is like stepping back in time, where nothing looks like anything you have seen before.  Enjoy these photos of my time in Cambodia.
