Traces of War


"During the Vietnam War, the US flew more than 580,000 bombing missions over Laos. This is equal to one bombing mission every 8 minutes around the clock for 9 full years. In fact, Xieng Khouang, shown above, is considered the most heavily bombed place on earth. This intensive bombing campaign has left the landscape pockmarked with bomb craters."

"Some have been converted into aquafarms and even a Laotian prince turned one into a swimming pool."

"And speaking of bomb craters, here's a photo of a victory garden flourishing in a blitzed crater in London"
