We then headed to the Genocide Museum. Our guide shared with us the story behind the pictures and structures we saw. It was heartbreaking to be reminded that people are capable of causing such harm and pain to their fellow human beings. Infants were thrown up in the air and shot right then and there. Sisters, brothers, mothers, fathers, daughters, sons were tortured and killed.
Going out of the country was not something I was interested in, until I saw pictures of my boss in INCITEGov, Ms. Dinky Soliman, in Cambodia. She was riding a motorcycle with a local and a good view of rice paddies of the rural part of the country. She looked like she was having fun! And, from then on, I said to myself that I would one day visit Cambodia.
