Phnom Penh (1999)

I first visited Cambodia in 1991. At the time, there was a civil war, and Phnom Penh was in ruins. In April 1999, I returned to Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The city was still a mess, but the atmosphere had definitely changed -- for better and for worse. Here are some pictures taken around the city. Notice the old French-style buildings, which still stand in the capital city. In hindsight, I also suspect the dark-haired guy standing on the balconey was a terrorist -- I had a very scary and strange experience with this dude.
