    I am loving these photo collections … Can you guys add captions to give a little more context? I’d love to know more about the subjects in these shots … like city, name or whatever else.

    The skulls picture is from Choeung Ek Killing Field in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. It was one of the sites where millions of people were murdered during Pol Pot’s reign of power during 1975-1979. During those four years, an estimated 3 million Cambodians were murdered (of an approximate 7 million total Cambodians living there at the time)

    It is strange. When I was a kid in the 1960’s, my father would watch the news and most of it revolved around the Vietnam war. I would go to bed afraid after listening to all the horrors of war. Now my Daughter visits this country. She said what a beautiful place, as you can see with these pictures.

    Terrific photos- really National Geographic quality. I would love to see you compile these and even more from each stop into a souvenir booklet, file, or website at the end. Not everything, of course, but maybe the 200-300 best photos from the voyage (including some ship-board ones.) And a I agree with one of the other commenters- with captions.

    Thanks to all the photographers and editors!
