Photographer's Note

My first days in Yangon.

I was impressed with the fast evolving august Monsoon weather in Burma, changing from a burning sun to a heavy rainstorm in a matter of minutes.

Another experience in Yangon harbor, waiting for a ferry to Dalla. My first meeting with Yangon's bureaucracy ended with a few bribery Kyats spent to the goodwill of the ticket officer. Meanwhile the good Yangon people waited for something, perhaps their main occupation for half or 3/4 of their life.

Five minutes later, rain and wind gusts battered the inside of the room. We and the yangonese people tucked in a corner of the dark waiting room... the ferry disappeared slowly behind a curtain of pouring rain.

----------------------------
Someone told me long ago there’s a calm before the storm,
I know; it’s been comin’ for some time.
When it’s over, so they say, it’ll rain a sunny day,
I know; shinin’ down like water.

I want to know, have you ever seen the rain?
I want to know, have you ever seen the rain
Comin’ down on a sunny day?

Lyrics by John Fogerty
