If you are new to our travels in Burma, you should maybe read our other recent trip reports which set the scene for much that follows. Collectively, they are a reminder that we are extremely lucky to have a choice of where we live and what kind of life style we follow:

Hastings, Domesday..., Burma 2010

Rob and Yuehong in Burma, 2005 - 10


The agenda for this trip was quite simple, we just had to complete our filming of the village of Dakhondaing, south of Moulmein in Mon State, this part is described in the Hastings, Domesday link above and those accounts give our 'take' on what is happening in the country now. Naturally, we had plenty of extras lined up like arranging the export of Yuehong's Red Baby and a tidying up operation in Irrawaddy Division which we had started in 2009 following our earlier pre-Nargis visits. If you are a hard core stationary steam fanatic then follow the links below and if you want to see it for yourself then, be warned, your time is limited. As the thumbnails suggest there's a lot more in these reports than just the steam engines, there are descriptions of our journeys in an almost undiscovered part of the country.
