burma pt. 1 – yangon and mandalay

I am currently poised to launch my new site – finally! It will combine more focused blogging with a professional portfolio. Seems these days my work is scattered all over the interwebs. I want to bring everything together under a more comprehensive brand with a few new additions. 2016 is already shaping up to be a year of change (something new and different for me, I know, I know).

But while we wait for my launch date at the beginning of February, let’s go back to Myanmar!

 

YANGON

Only here a short time, I eased into Burmese life by staying with my friend’s family. Just so happened that my friend Trish was actually in town during my visit, so I got to spend time with her and her twin brothers. We mostly just ate a lot of authentic Burmese food. Pretty much my ideal way to introduce myself to a new country.

MANDALAY

My kiwi friend Mel joined me for the majority of the trip. Mandalay was more our midway point between Bagan and Inle Lake, but we did spend one rainy day climbing Mandalay Hill followed by U-Bein Bridge for sunset.
