Myanmar Through My Lens

Good Thursday to you all! In an effort to make the demands of this blog a little less on me in terms of writing, I’ve decided to make Thursday a day where I present many photos of a place (city, county, region) to you on the blog. And also to lessen the words you need to read!

Today in the first edition of ‘Through My Lens’ I head back to Myanmar to show you some of my favourite photos of a special country!
