Makes you wonder how many times someone has walked over that mine in the last 30 years plowing, planting and harvesting rice. The reason those harvesters and other machinery like that have wide tracks is so they put less pressure on the ground .. Must have been karma that set the mine off.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
