PHONSAVAN, LOCATED IN THE XIANGKHOUANG PROVINCE OF LAOS, IS KNOWN FOR THE MYSTERIOUS “PLAIN OF JARS”. BUT ALSO, TRAGICALLY, THIS BEAUTIFUL AND FERTILE AREA WAS ONE OF THE HARDEST HIT DURING THE VIETNAM/AMERICAN WAR, WITH A WORLD RECORD TONNAGE OF BOMBS DROPPED PER CAPITA IN THE 9 YEAR PERIOD. AN AVERAGE OF 300 PEOPLE PER YEAR, MANY OF THEM CHILDREN ARE STILL SERIOUSLY INJURED OR KILLED DUE TO THE MILLIONS OF UNEXPLODED MINES AND BOMBS STILL REMAINING, DESPITE THE DECADES OF CLEANING BEING PURSUED. THIS IS A 40 YEAR OLD TRAGEDY AND ONGOING!
