War Museum In Cambodia

2017-05-25 14.45.56 (1).jpg

The War Museum in Siem Reap, Cambodia was awesome! I could go up to the tank, walk on it, or do anything. Our guide was in the war and died 12 times. He got shot a lot of times, stepped on a lot of landmines, has one full leg, one eye is blind and he has metal in his body from the landmines. It was sad that at the age of 9 his mother, father, brothers and sister were killed when he was out in the field collecting food. He survived by himself eating bugs and other types of easy to grab food for a couple of years. He told us of a story where a kid at the age of 12 was a commander. He was brain-washed and shot hundreds of people by the time he was 13. There’s a book about our guide and his life’s journey called “Sinarth” by Karl Levy. Over all the day was AWESOME¡!¡!
