This was taken one evening in 2004 at the Phnom Penh National Olympic Stadium. The stadium was completed in 1964, and was originally built to host the Southeast Asian Peninsular Games, but the games were canceled due to political problems in Cambodia. During the regime of the Khmer Rogue, the stadium was used for executions. The stadium was redeveloped, and currently use used by many of those living in Phnom Penh as an exercise center. Every morning and evening you can always find people walking, running, playing football (soccer for us Americans) and even basketball.
