Burma and Bangkok offer many photo ops, but first, who can resist a cat picture?
These feral cats could live anywhere. In this case, they hang around a Buddhist nunnery in Yangon and are well fed, as you can see.
There are several blocks of street markets in the Chinatown section of Yangon. I like the pattern these long-toed chicken feet make.
I have no clue why this wrestling statue is featured at the waterfront park in Sittwe, Burma (Myanmar).
The King of Thailand died last month and the entire country is observing a month-long period of mourning. There are shrines and memorials all over the city of Bangkok and many people are dressed in black.
This Buddhist monk lives in a beautiful monastery adjacent to the Grand Palace in Bangkok, Thailand.
The Bangkok Grand Palace is a huge complex full of stunning temples, pagodas and statuary. This fellow is the representation of a demon.
McDonald’s seems to be everywhere, along with Starbuck’s and Dunkin’ Donuts. In Bangkok, Ronald meets customers with the wai gesture, a traditional Thai greeting.
This gesture comes in handy for expressing gratitude, apology and (in my case, since I don’t speak the language) friendliness. So I’m sending you a wai for now from Thailand…until next Monday.
