Yeah, I remember the story.

Gross National Happiness is more important than Gross National Product. Or something like that.

Based on street views, Cambodia looks organised and cleaner than majority of the third world out there. Even cleaner than some second world nations.

Horrible Hotel Palace in Helsinki which Danish Steen Christensen robbed and later shot two police officers to death here. The latest police murders in Finland. Happened in 1997.
