burma feature

More adventure photos from a bygone era. This is #Burma (now called #Myanmar ) in the 1980s when an authoritarian government only allowed 10 days travel visa. I remember that distinctly because I overstayed and had to bribe an airport official to board the plane. The country was very much cut off from media and backward. When Nobel Peace winner Aung San Suu Kyi came out of house arrest and was elected, democracy improved but as of last year 2020 a military junta has taken power again and the country is fading to black with 71 journalists arrested. Today as I write this May 6, 2021 the junta has banned satellite TV. #Adventurephotos
