Photographer's Note

Hi everyone, I have just arrived home from a fantastic four weeks in Burma. Flew to the north and travelled down slowly by, bus, pick-up, jeep and boat back to Yangon. Sometimes the travelling was hard, but always rewarding. Once I get my breath back, I will write a travelogue for those interested, but wanted to say hello. This is by last photo shot on Wednesday on the quiet streets of Yangon, (Martyrs Day).
Martyrs' day is to remember late General Aung San, father of the country's independence.
Aung San, along with eight other martyrs, were all assassinated 59 years ago on July 19, 1947 before the country regained independence from the British in 1948.
The eight other martyrs, assassinated along with General Aung San, include his bodyguard and seven councilor members.

I'll try to catch up with all your postings shortly.
