To Energysavingelk: Street art

Hi Sven, it was intended. There were other similar arrangements too, one involving a basketball hoop. Very striking! Cheers, Ryno.

To batalay: Flash and red sari

Thanks, Bulent. I'm glad you like them. The Golden temple is such an easy place to take photos, because it's so dramatic. No, I didn't use a flash here because I didn't want to disturb her, but I...

To rigoletto: Burma

Deniz, from your home page it seems you have not been to Myanmar yet. You should try to go, it's a photographer's paradise. These days you can even get a visa on arrival. The writing on the wall is...

Hi Lydia

To yquem46: Myanmar

Ha ha! I'm happy to be associated with Myanmar, Patrick. I still miss the place. I'll be moving to China in July. It's not Burma, but at least back in Asia. Cheers,

To holmertz: Malacca photo

Hi Gert

Thanks again for the interest and the correction, Erdem. I lived in Turkey for six years, but my knowledge of the language and culture is still very faulty, as you can see. I will adjust my notes...

To samson: Water fest.

Nice comment. Thanks. I didn't know about the festival in Yunnan, but it makes sense because there are other strong cultural links between Myanmar and Yunnan. Cheers,

Hi Leo

Unfortunately I won't be in Myanmar then. I'll be taking up a new post in Nigeria in June. I hope to come back here sooner rather than later though.
