A picture blog of a beautiful city and its people - Yangon, Burma
Rangoon or Yangon became my dream city. A place I had to visit. So, in July last year that dream came true. This is a picture blog. No context for the pictures. But I know that people in Yangon will be able to relate to many of the images. It may even bring laughter or sadness to those Burmese forced to live outside their beautiful country, trying to make a living. I have had the pleasure of meeting so many wonderful Burmese here in Abu Dhabi. This is a tribute to them for inspiring me to make my dream a reality. It is also about saying thank you to the many faces from my trip - faces that are now etched in my memory.
I recall, more than anything, faces with smiles. People talk about Thailand as being the land of smiles. I want to add Burma to Thailand in that regard. The smiles reflect a resilience I have encountered nowhere else on my travels.
Go bac with me to July 2015.
Burma, Myanmar, but always Burma to me.
