I hope you don’t mind if I just reprint a few lines of Rudyard Kipling’s famous poem “On the road to Mandalay” and let you enjoy 21 new images from my recent, Amazing Myanmar Photo Tour.

“On the road to Mandalay”….those with a wanderlust will surely relate…..

Ship me somewheres east of Suez, where the best is like the worst,
Where there aren’t no Ten Commandments an’ a man can raise a thirst;
For the temple-bells are callin’, an’ it’s there that I would be —
By the old Moulmein Pagoda, looking lazy at the sea;

    I agree, that 5th image is amazing, as is the silhouette on U-Bein! I know the inability to post these updates while there was unfortunate but I’m rather enjoying seeing these now that I’m home and already missing Myanmar.
