Photo Hunt: Ruin
In 1997 before Hannah came along, I went with Elizabeth and my Dad to Myanmar (Burma). We had a very interesting time getting to the areas the the Junta allow you to visit. One of the most interesting areas were the ruins in Bagan, dating back to 1000 AD when it was the capital. For ruins, they are in pretty good shape for 1000 year old buildings.
Even then we had to consider the issues of the evil junta and how our foreign exchange was supporting their regime. I wouldn't go now.
Talking of countries with y in their name. Apparantly there are at least 15. We managed to work out 14, including Myanmar. Any ideas for odd ones?
