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?

They are great photos. It would have been great to see first hand even though you wouldn't go again. I am going to Thailand next week and not even sure about that given all the political unrest.

They don't build them like they used to...

What amazing images! They almost look other worldly! If there is such a thing as glorious ruins, this must be a prime example!

It must have been truly magnificent in all it's glory. I've never been to Asia, except a day in Colombo so long ago.
Good choice. Enjoy your busy weekend.

What a great post! The castle is amazing. That's a good trivia question, about the Ys. I'll have to quiz my kids.

I did Photo Hunt today, too. I hope you get a chance to visit and leave your link!
