‘Phnom Sampeau - Flat Cambodia’

After enjoying the wonderful nature in Laos for 40 days, the displacements through Cambodia were not immediately breathtaking events.
There is a lot to visit in Cambodia, but the landscapes were mostly boring. Not the entire country is flat but very large parts are flat with a wooded hill here and there.
I arrived in Cambodia on January 18, in the middle of the dry season, and that turned out to be the time of year when farmers set fire to their fields before replanting.
Once over the border with Laos and on my way to Stung Treng, a city in the northeast of Cambodia, all I saw were blackened fields.

These views were replaying in much of the country.
Consequently, I was delighted to see the normal colours of the fields during the dry season in the vicinity of Battambang (a city in another part of the country).
All three pictures are taken in the late afternoon on top of the hill of Phnom Sampeau, a place where temples can be visited and where certain caves have been used as an execution site of the Khmer Rouge.
