Hi Ryno!
When will you move to China?
A good shot taken south of Nyaung Shwe.
Oh I know this place verry well,I stayed two times at four sisters guesthouse and was there nearly every morning at sunrise.
Good shot with these pagodas and Buddha statue and the mountains in the distance,the diagonal of the water and the canoe at the perfect position.
This time on december 29th I arrived with a delay of two hours at Heho airport and when I arrived in Nyaung Shwe nearly every guesthouse and hotel was booked and I had to spend the night in a 80 dollar room........
I`m still angry about this waste of money.........
The next morning I took the train,2 dollar for upper class , a nice 4 hours ride to Kalaw.
You did well to change your mind and went to Malaysia instedd.
We both can be verry happy that we spent a lot of time in Burma before the change.
Change?????
I spoke to many locals, I`m searching the www for news from Burma, and I think the only thing what changed is that the generals don`t wear uniforms now but do the same what they did the lastabout 50 years......
Best regards,leo

Default To leo61: Tianjin

Hey Leo,
Yes this photo was taken close to the 4 Sisters guest house. I'll be leaving Lagos the first week of June, get my Chinese work visa in South Africa, and then try to spend a few weeks in Myanmar before I have to report for work in Tianjin around 29 July. But next week I'm off to Chiang Mai for a week's holiday. Can't wait, I just want to sit at beer gardens all night long next to that lazy river flowing through the city. Do you plan to visit Myanmar again, or was that your last trip? I'll probably hate the new Burma.
Cheers
Ryno

I'll probably hate the new Burma.........
Dear Ryno!
Me too........
The first night in Bagn I had a 30$ room , worth maybe 4.....In India,Cambodia or Laos I can have a suite for this amount of money.......
When you want to see unspoiled Burma, go to Kyaing Tong for trekking,Lahu Akha,Palaung people,wonderful and I noticed there less than ten foreigners in 4 days.

Maybe I go back there in october.I have to clear depts with the owner of Law yee chain hotel in Kyaing Tong.
Two years ago he invited me to some shots of black label and this year we recognized each other and comming back from a trekking tour I received a phone call from the reception."my boss is waiting for dinner with you"

He invited me to a fantastic dinner and I had the choice between black label and an 18 years old Glenmorangie.......
Maybe I go back there but never again to Bagan,Mandalay,Inle.....Ngapali is still nice.not much changes there ,except many of the beautiful girls are wearing blue jeans now.......
Good luck for your plans,take care,
Leo
