#Battambang, Day 2: The Train Station

Who doesn’t like urban decay? Battambang has seen its fair share of corrosion post-Khmer Rouge and post-Civil War. Though not a huge space, the train station is a very centrally-located abandoned space that actually still has city signs pointing to its location. It’s also completely open, which means there’s no risk of being an intruder. When Emanuel and I checked it out, it was hot, and there were kids playing with a ball nearby. It was an enjoyable “trek” through the weeds to capture a unique part of the city.

Strangely, someone tagged this overturned train car with a message from Iowa:
