The golden and ancient city of Yangon

From Sri Lanka to Myanmar, a country in transition.

In Yangon, ancient rituals, golden pagodas, and crumbling colonial townhouses add a romantic context to the daily bustle of Downtown, where we have a small apartment.

The city, the country, and its people are moving from a long period of international isolation under military rule to a more open, global society, along with all the challenges and opportunities this brings.

But right now, walking around the packed streets of Downtown Yangon is often like stepping back in time.
