    Thanks Waysai. Thi Ha, who will be with us and is Vice President of the Myanmar Photog. Society, says he wants to organise a get-together with the photogrpahers of Mandalay one evening in the November trip, so we should meet Than Htay then. I hope you'll be able to come to Burma on some future trip (I want to organise more of these trips).

    Hi Philip,

    I will be going to Burma around mid-late August this year. May stay for a couple of months or at least 2 months. Not sure I will be there until you guys arrive. Will see.
  • Update
    Here's the latest on the Burma trek:

    At the moment looks like 8 people coming, which is $480 each (plus $20 for those wanting a single room), or if 7 coming it's $510 each, +$20 again for singles. Please let me know if you still think you can come - give me an indication how likely you think it is you'll come. No need to pay yet.

    COST (in-country):
    4+1 US$ 545,-- per person in twin sharing room
    5+1 US$ 540,-- per person in twin sharing room
    6+1 US$ 510,-- per person in twin sharing room
    7+1 US$ 480,-- per person in twin sharing room
    Single supplement US$ 25,--
    (I got the trip re-costed for airtravel so we have more time for photos. Anyone prefer the train? Thi Ha says you can't sleep on Burmese trains).
