People of Myanmar

People of Myanmar, originally uploaded by rolnero.

Beautiful set of portraits of people in Myanmar.

We hear about the disaster of Cyclone Nargis and the crackdown by the junta last year and we come away with a sense of grey. These photos show the resilience of every day people. Rolnero's set also has portraits of people in Mexico and Peru.

Hi Chanpheng! First of all many thanks for your comment on my post of 08.08.08 at 08h08 at Blogtrotter, now in Kos, Greece! It was great to read you there. Second, sorry for the long delay to come here, but August was a terribly busy month, as everybody else seems to be in vacation…
Anyhow, I found sometime now to land here and enjoy your blog. Beautiful pictures, great treat! Fish tank is superb! The floods, however, seem to have been quite harsh... :(
Wish you a great weekend!

I like photos like this. It reflected the daily lifestyle of another country.
