Things I saw in Cambodia

Firstly, did you know Tin Tin had a mishap in Cambodia?
I never read this one:

The beauty:

Me in ruins (800+ year old ruins!):

The poverty.
Where a woman with a baby rows up to us and begs for money:

The fried stuff (crickets and spiders):

The evil:

Even though we'd pledged it would never happen again after 1945, it happened between 1975-1979. My parents wouldn't have survived. My brother born in 1972 would've been shot. I would've starved to death if I made it. 2 million people died. 8000 skulls are piled up high in the killing fields. So how can we say we've learnt our lesson?
