I came back to Myanmar 10 years later. Photos above were taken in 2009.
In those days was mandatory to travel with a person assigned by the government plus the payment of 25 USD daily to that person. That man controlled everything, including the photos. My feeling then were its a nice but extremely underdeveloped country. No street lights at night. Now in 2019 I had the same feelings.
At least it's easier now, with no people from the government besides you all the time. However the weather these days was horrible. Unbearable heat.
I took some photos, this time with mobile. Here some of them:
|Atmosphere in Mandalay is always warm.|
|Electricity cuts. About 20-30 times per day. Using Internet is scary movie.|
|Young pink monks spreading happiness.|
|More little pink monks.|
|Me. Banana hat stops the EXTREMELY high Sun waves.|
|For some reason there are this fuel stations style everywhere.|
|My wallet is too thin for the thick money.|
|Streets of Mandalay.|
|No explanation. I just like this photo.|
