marlene21 Today I visited the 'Killing Fields' and as those who had done it before me promised, it was one of the most emotional experiences I have ever had. Unlike the Holocaust I feel like the 3 million Cambodians who lost their lives only 35-40 years ago under the cruel and barbaric reign of the Khmer Rouge aren't given the sufficient international recognition they deserve. I had read about the Khmer Rouge era before going but being there was something else. By the end I was in tears as I am reminded once again of how inhumane humans can be... 2w

marlene21 Today I visited a park for rescued elephants and it was one of the most amazing days of my life! It was a profound and emotional experience which I will remember forever. I did a lot of research before deciding which park I would visit as I am against exploiting these beautiful creatures for human entertainment, whether it's elephant rides or having them perform tricks for tourists. This park was started by a woman named Lek who has now saved and rehoused 65 elephants. I saw elephants with physical and mental impairments from the abuse they were once subjected to. There were elephants that had been stabbed in the eyes, stepped on land mines, broken their legs from forced logging labour etc This woman has now given them a new chance at life and are once again able to roam the jungles of Thailand, peacefully and happily. I was very impressed by what this woman started with money out of her own pocket. The elephants are well cared for and while some people said to me that 6000 baht was a lot of money to pay for this day, I say that the experience was worth so much more. I couldn't recommend this place more highly. If you truly want an incredible experience with these magnificent creatures, please do not visit elephant camps that allow riding or have them perform tricks. Those elephants are horribly abused and you are contributing to that abuse 🏼 Kob Khun Ka 3w
