NEW! Journal de Bord

Union of Myanmar

This is the country I’ve spent 2 years of my life .As controversial as it may be the regime , I did find this country most interesting , with welcoming and smiling people , great food , outstanding spices.

Here are a few photos of the former capital – Yangon , surroundings , Bagan and some other special places …Enjoy !

  1. foarte exotic,frumos si deosebit,mai ales pt noi am fost inca in Asia,maybe some day!

    • I hope it will be someday ..again…for me …Asia will uncover for the curious and the open minded ! Yet again it still has many secrets …

  2. mingalaba! ai facut niste poze superbe, mai ales cea cu karaweyik! nu-mi vine sa cred ca au mai fost romani pe acolo…am fost si eu de curand in yangon si bagan, a fost o chestie neprevazuta, nici nu auzisem bine de tara asta, biletul de avion luat cu 2 saptamani inainte:)) oricum e cea mai frumoasa tara pe care am vazut-o, as da oricand toata europa pe myanmar. merita!

    • Da , e superb , eu am stat doi ani acolo , din 1998 pana-n 2000 si-am avut ocazia sa cam vad ce-i mai important …e drept , in blog n-am pus decat cateva poze…asa , “just a glimpse”….Si ,sunt total de acord cu tine ( eu unul eram decis sa raman acolo ) e o tara unde merita sa traiesti – singurul setback e regimul , cum bine stii … – despre motivele pentru care am plecat , poate alta data , dar niciodata public ( intr-un mail privat eventual ) .

      Toate cele bune si multumesc de vizita !
