Tonle Sap Lake & Land Mine Museum - Cambodia

Life here is truly "on the water" including homes, schools, and playgrounds. We even saw a young girl sitting on a small platform a few yards from her home, reading a book next to her pet cat that was stretched out on the platform.

We didn't take pictures of the landmine museum because it was too depressing. Cambodia is the most densely mined country in the world, with an estimated 8 million landmines. It is not safe to stray from known paths.
