Farewell Burma

At the train station in Yangon.

A girl with thanaka on her face. Thanaka, found on the faces of most children and women, is a sort of sunscreen/make-up made from the bark of a tree with the same name.

We met this woman and her daughter on one of our last days in Yangon. Austin took a remarkable photo of them which can be found on his blog:

Check out Austin's blog for more shots of the soccer balls.

Sorting through a storm drain looking for valuables. In his left hand he holds a magnet.

The streets of Yangon.

A Triumph in particularly good condition, considering the state of the streets.

Our last night in Burma...We'll miss it.

Good morning Will, amazing pics once again from both of you guys. The Triumph looks to a late 60's or early 70's. I'm thinking it'll be a TR3 or maybe TR4 model. I wonder who would own the baby?
Enjoy your last week......

You have opened my eyes to what I have referred to as Year Zero analogy. I now see this corruption is reality right now so far from our western free life.

I am so fortunate! Thank you for doing what you believe in and the courage to let others be aware!
