The Russian Embassy in all its former Communist glory is decayed and old, it shows the sign of a failed state. Before the Khmer Rouge this building was here, standing tall, standing for its ideology. One day the Khmer Rouge soldiers knocked on the door and welcomed as comrades, as red brothers. The soldiers entered and open the fridge. In side aghast was an egg. On seeing this food the solider picked it up and smashed it on the ground. The solider look at the Russians with accusation in their eye. You are not a true communist they decreed, the true communist only eats the Chicken not the egg. Many chickens come from the egg.
