I like to consider myself an early bird, but the truth speaks otherwise. I mean there are jetlag days when I take high pride waking up alongside the singing birds. Since filming and photography have dominated my past decade, I did have to start waking up early to catch that golden morning sunlight that doesn't give those harsh contrasts with shadows. There is probably no better place waking up early than in Myanmar. The hustle and bustle of the early hours can be more awakening than coffee. Since non of my family members have had ventured farther east than Istanbul, it was about time to have my sister Bianka, and husband Pali come over for a quick Thailand & Myanmar visit. This is what we say while traveling around Rangoon, Bago and Mt. Kyaiktiyo.
