Phnom Phen

Royal Compound in Phnom Phen

Phnom Phen is the capitol of Cambodia - during the Pol Pot Insanity it was abandoned - the entire population (some million people) enslaved to work in the rice fields. It rates as one of the worlds classical third world shit-holes. The only good thing about it was that we stayed at a friend of Dr. Wak's - Wolfgang. He is the MD for a major European company and treated us like gold.

I have no idea what the Khmer writing says; but the graphic sums it up nicely.
