A Dusty Cambodian School Room in Ratanakiri Province.
Above Photo: A mysterious set of benches and a desk set out in a barren field surrounded by rubber plantations.
On another recent trip in Ratanakiri Province, in north western Cambodia, we were surprised to see what looked like a school room set up with benches and an area for the teacher to teach in front of the class.
The fact this was located in a dusty field of blowing rich-red earth seemed beside the point.
It was just another odd sight in the pleasantly weird tri-border area of Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia, where I was travelling and doing research for my Backpacker/Vietnam War novel BACK.
See the trailer for our new film, M.I.A. A Greater Evil. Set in the jungles of Laos and Vietnam, the film deals with the possible fate of US servicemen left behind after the US pulled out of the Vietnam War.
And for POWs left behind in Laos:
