Road Block


Mined roads and ambushes on this section of the road from Saigon to Phnom Penh Cambodia were few. (One is enough if you are in it.) My first thought when I look at this picture is, this is the MAIN ROAD (only one) from the capital of Vietnam to the capital of Cambodia????? Holy Crap Batman!

The road gets worse a few miles west. It turns to low quality dual lane cow paths in less than 5 miles. This red clay section (laterite) was solid when dry but in the wet season the road became a swamp.
