Both photos in this entry are by Calvin Tan, who I met when I arrived in Mandalay, Myanmar. We shared a cab from the airport to the city with Claus, who I had met on the flight. The three of us toured together the next day before Calvin rushed home to Singapore as his vacation ended. Claus (who is from Denmark) is seen behind a cloud of smoke in the photo below - he developed quite an attachment to the local cheroots. My thanks to Calvin both for sending me these photos (which I love) and for allowing me to post them.
P.S. Those sunglasses are now on the bottom of the Mekong River in the north of Laos. Long story.
