Burma (Myanmar)Travels 2001

These images come from the last leg of my 6 month 'winterless' journey across Asia in 2000/2001. January and February in Burma are cool, pleasant times.

This leg of the journey was exceptional for two reasons. First, it was the only one to involve air travel, because all land borders were closed, and the only way into and out of the country was by air. Second, unlike my travels through other countries, where my general objective was to get from one side to the other, Burma was an excursion, beginning in Rangoon, travelling up to Mandalay (overland) then back to Rangoon again (by boat down the Irrawaddy), with another side jaunt up the Bay of Bengal to visit Sitwe.

Delhi Deadlines by Sheldon Smith

A washed out journalist, posted to India to cover a bloody election campaign, uncovers truths about his son's life - and death - in the country, truths that test loyalties forged in the war zones of Bosnia and Rwanda. A fiercely evocative narrative of modern-day India, filled with the clamour and hot stinks of its capital, this is a novel of death woven through with life.

"The writing is very very good... the mysteriousness of Wyndham's death and the narrator's involvement will entice the reader to keep reading." - 2012 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award (ABNA) Expert Reviewer
