Bassac River to Woman's Island

Bassac River to Woman’s Island

Phnom Penh is the junction of the Mekong and the Bassac Rivers. On a shooting trip over to Woman’s Island in the Bassac, we met several fishing vessels plying the waters. This young fellow on the bow was working hard to help his father to feed the family. To Woman’s Island was where Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge sent women and children to be slaughtered, that those in the city mainland could not heard their cries of agony.
