I saw yesterday and hated it . . .

From an exercise pole to a pole of torture.

There are many photographs of those who were killed on display, but I didn’t think it was right to post them on a blog, particularly after read the regulations below.

The happiest moment of our visit came about as we were leaving. Near the exit gate I met one of the survivors of this horrible place.

Bou Meng had written about his time as a prisoner.

I felt honoured that he was happy to sign his book for me.

This ‘school’ is located in the capital city, it is not hidden away.

It was only a short drive and we were happy to see how life had changed for the locals.

Traveled a great deal - about 70 countries - first foreign country I suppose was Wales, which was only 80 miles away from where I was born. Visited each Continent, except Antarctica, and I doubt that it is on my bucket list - too cold. I love Asian food, Australian wine & British beer & trying to entertain by writing.
