Delving Into the Past and Present of a Fascinating Country

November 13, 2011

This one is easy. Fascinating country, past and present and more like Venezuela that you could ever imagine.

Cross a second one off my Bucket List, not easy to do that in one year, but then again, I missed crossing one off in 2010.

More on this place later…

    I was in Cambodia about 3 years ago for 5 weeks, working with the Extraordinary Chambers of the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC), where they held the trials of members of the Khmer Rouge who committed genocide and crimes against humanity. I saw all the important places in Phnom Penh, including the royal palace, and went shopping like crazy in the Russian Market. After my assignment was over, I spent about a week in Siem Reap, where I visited the temples of Angkor Wat and other neighboring places. I really loved Cambodia and although it might remind you of Venezuela, I felt much more secure there. I even saw people jogging at 5 a.m. and although I took a lot of care, I never felt as if at any moment I might be mugged, kidnapped or killed. I even told my relatives in Venezuela, that even after 30 years of Communist rule and civil war, Cambodia was much better kept than Venezuela and Phnom Penh was cleaner.
