Myanmar (Burma)

For lack of a better analogy, Myanmar (Burma) is the “Cuba” of Southeast Asia; it hasn’t changed much in the past 60 years. Our Burmese visa was very regionally-specific and hard to obtain. We were “encouraged” (by the government-sponsored agencies) to visit to certain areas of the country and FORBIDDEN to visit others. I took these limited number of photos in Rangoon, the Inle Lake region, and the ancient and breathtaking city of Bagan, located in the Mandalay region of the country.
