Phnom Penh day 2

Alright, I'm a tourist.

I visited the National Museum in Phnom Penh to learn about Khmer history, and to see some of the artifacts that were rescued from Angkor Wat/Siem Reap (since the temples have been looted). 

The gardens in the National Garden are a rare place to find greenery. Very pretty!

I couldn't take photos of the exhibits (technically) but you can kinda see some in the background...

Today I visited S21, the genocide museum, and the Choeung Ek killing fields. I'm not sure what I can say about it... except I'm glad I went. Wow.

Beds with chains still attached.

Markings for the different cells.

I also visited the Russian Market, which was basically a large warehouse full of tourist shops.  

Unrefrigerated meat. Yum.
