Hey guys we currently in the capital of Cambodia, and we are on a history to our learning about some sad things that happened here like about the communism, and about the wars that happened here, and we’re currently going to check out a killing field where many people died I really enjoy going on like history tours. Because in Australia our diversity of history it’s quite poor like we really learn about our indigenous people then if you want to learn about like British Nazi or Americans you have to do it is like an optional like in school in school yeah, and especially if you want to learn about like a small country such as Cambodia that’s not going to happen I wasn’t even aware about any of this until we’ve come in the 70s over three million people were executed across the killing fields across Cambodia you’re saying there’s around 300 killing like one, and a half million were killed in their killing fields, and then the other one, and a half million died of starvation during those years the poi is during the Communist years this is insane it was in the 70s this happened closer than like the Nazi regime to 2018, and I didn’t know anything about it like this is so interested I guess that’s the main main reason why you like come to these countries as well.
