I've just posted some images from a trip I took to Burma (Myanmar) over 20 years ago in 1989. I don't suspect that much has changed in the meantime other than the political climate.

Thanks! Very interesting. I was in Yangan for a day at the end of 1971, planning to go up-river to Bagan -- but made a quick change of plans to avoid an impending airline strike. I will be going back, and to Bagan, Mandalay and the Inle Lake region this December finally, after 42 years! I've been meaning to ask for examples on this forum. Maybe I should make a gallery of my (Nikkormat!) slides from eons ago...

I've uploaded a gallery of about 20 pics from my visit to Yangan in Dec. 1971. These are all scans of Kodachrome II slides taken with a Nikkormat, mostly with the 50mm f/1.4, a few with the 135mm telephoto. I'm not sure how to reference that gallery for most convenient access, but the URL should be:

<http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/8431741495/albums>

Most of these shots are at the Shwe Dagon pagoda; a few are at the Sule Pagoda, and others are urban street shots in Yangon (Rangoon).
