Reflections ~ The Killing Fields

A small seating area along the marsh

Beauty survives

Living with history - a small rice farm alongside the killing fields

Making a living - alongside the killing fields,
men fish to provide a living for their families.

Rising above - a small traditional house on stilts above the river provides
a home for those making a living on the water.

Once filled with death and horror, there are glimpses of beauty retaking the landscape.

Trying to comprehend what took place here was extremely difficult. Seeing the skulls of the innocent and the rags left behind made it all too real. A cemetery full of terrified remains - this was their last view of Cambodia.
