The Bokor Palace Hotel ~ Bokor Hill Station, Cambodia
Dec 28 2001

The deserted Bokor Grand palace stands as testimony to the fickle winds of change that blow through Cambodia. Once the richest, most developed and brightest star in Asia, Cambodia has become a beggar nation of corrupt officials and iinfluential criminals with a national budget fifty percent subsidized by the outside world. None of this has taken away from the gracious and friendly spirit of the Khmer people who upon meeting seem incapable of the kind of madness that caused this country (and this place) to fall so far since the 1960s.
