Thanks for posting this. I like the presentation... looking forward to see the larger res.

Somehow it looks familiar. Burma - as it was called then - was the highlight of our honeymoon trip... more than 30 years ago. I probably should dust off my old slide scans.

People were so nice. They were touching us, as if we were coming from another planet.

Thanks for looking and taking the time to comment.

In many rural areas, Western tourists are still enough of an oddity to draw lots of attention, especially from children.
In my previous trip in 2010, I was in a small town in south eastern Myanmar where I had anticipated trouble getting a room and so my Burmese friend had called ahead to get a place for us. My two traveling companions and I had gone out to find some supper and we had eventually landed in a small out of the way restaurant after the first two had told us they were out of food (not unusual in a small family restaurant).

Half way through the meal, the waitress came over and handed me a phone. I was dumbstruck that anyone could have found me.

As it turned out my friend had called the hotel to see if we had gotten settled, they had told him that we had gone to eat and, by calling around he was easily able to locate me because everyone in town knew who we were and where we were staying.

I love Myanmar and, would live there as an expatriate willingly.
