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.

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.
