Adventures in Asia

by Greg & Francie

Internet trouble in Myanmar

Greg and I have all these great photos and tales to tell, but the internet in myanmar does not cooperate.  It is “down” half the time and the other half of the time the power is out.  And the 2% of the time when its working and the power is not out (e.g. right now), it is v. v. slow.  Greg has spent the last 40 minutes trying to upload one photo to flickr.  So yáll might have to wait till we get back to Bangkok to see most of the antics we’ve been up to.  Here’s a sneak peak at what you have to look forward too if you are patient:

  • Photos of Francie riding an Ox.
  • The “off the hook” water festival in Yangon and Mandalay.
  • Temples of Bagan.
  • Many many photos of adorable children. (and who doesn’t like photos of adorable children???)
  • Photos of Greg with his face painted streaking through the Royal palace in Mandalay.  (ok, just kidding about that one 🙂 )

Likewise with email – it’s been a challenge to respond to messages but we’ll get back to all yáll as soon as we can.  Have a lovely day.

  1. Water Festival?

    I am trying to imagine an “off the hook” water festival.

    I suppose i’ll sit tight and wait for the update. Most likely not like some US themepark like “Raging Waters”?

    Can’t wait to hear about it. Having a festival about water is a pretty good idea. We would die without it after all.

    By the way – tangent here. In SF it is a beautiful rainy night …AND it is Earth Day. I went to a little art gallery event and overheard some folks whining about how “Earth Day” will be rainy. Huh??? It rains on earth. WELCOME TO EARTH! I should have said that to them, but I maintained my composure and just chilled out…didn’t flame them for the comment 🙂
