CAMBODIA, 11-15 December 2008

In case you've been wondering, PIANOMANIA did not go AWOL. It just spent 5 days in Cambodia, the ultimate land of charm and cruelty (to borrow the words of Stan Stesser). By the way, I did not spot a single piano in Siem Reap nor Phnom Penh. Here are some photos taken from my cheapo Fujifilm Finepix A820 camera.

Faces of Jayavarman VII at the Bayon, Angkor Thom.
Talk about being narcissitic.

Reflections of Angkor Wat.

infamous Tuol Sleng S-21 centre.
"Tell the world about what happened here," he said.
Lest we forget... Never again.
