Traffic jam

Apparently traffic really only wants to go one way on this major road in Yangon.

Favorite Photo Friday: Waiting on Customers

Bored at work

Shopping at Mingalar Market near Inle Lake we wandered by numerous stalls filled with brightly colored longyis.  The range of colors and patterns available was stunning. Finally, after walking through the market a few times we gave into temptation and bought some longyis to bring back as gifts.

Favorite Photo Friday: Drying Off

Stretch

Brown Pelican stretching to dry its feathers

Pelicans have always fascinated me, from their odd shaped head to the way they majestically glide inches above the water. This boat dock in Sarasota held a large congregation of birds as it seems that some boaters will feed them. We snapped a few shots around the area, but this one picture caught my eye because of the unique pattern on the pelican’s back and the way the feathers leading to its wings are puffed out.

Favorite Photo Friday: Windows to the Sky

Sky windows

Our trip to Yunnan was a welcomed respite from being trapped in a world of persistent gray skies of the wet season in Guangzhou. We marveled at the clear blue sky overhead during our entire time in Yunnan, soaking in as much sun as we could. These windows near the Ganden Sumtsenling Monastery, provided an interesting angle to witness the breath of fresh air Yunnan gave us.

Favorite Photo Friday: Here’s Looking at You Kid

Baby eyes

Walking around the small villages in Chengyang (程阳) we got plenty of stares, but none were cuter than this little guy who was enraptured by the passing laowais (老外) [which is Chinese slang for foreigners].

Favorite Photo Friday: Old Signs

Old sign BW

I loved all the old signs we would see in China. They were eye-catching day or night. This was taken in Guangzhou, in the old part of town that we definitely didn’t visit enough.
