Phnom Penh - the Royal Palace grounds

On February 4, several weeks after we left, Cambodia's former king, Norodom Sihanouk was cremated. He was very beloved, became king in 1941 and led the country to independence from France in 1953. He abdicated in 2004 in favor of his son.

We visited the Royal Palace on our first day.
