Southeast Asia

Burmese Rivertown

This dry-season village seemed to exist in an earlier century. Bamboo rafts are floated downriver to market, and some Chin Tribe villagers have never seen Westerners. To get there, we took a plane from Yangon to Sittwe, an 8 hour boat trip to Mrauk U, a 3 hour horse and cart ride, and a 3 hour boat ride up this small river.
