In Phonesavan, Laos, I saw an incredible amount of ordinance on display at various stores and guest houses, including a house built using bomb casings as stilts, and a place that had decorated a tree with dozens of bomblets as Christmas ornaments (I'm not joking). Most war scrap that isn't ordinance has been carted off for the value of the metal, so it's relatively rare to see something like this. Recently the government has been trying to preserve some of the history so this will probably remain.
