Sen Rung Roeung 2 Morokot Choam Khsat Preah Vihear

In these photos you can see how an MRE session is held for anyone who happens to be around. The local folks are VERY open to learning how to distinguish objects which might be dangerous as many of the older folks remember what happened when they DID explode in the past.
