How beautiful are these faces of Myanmar? Open, inquisitive, intrigued, bemused, and for the little guy on the left, perhaps a little bewildered at us and our cameras. I visited Myanmar (formerly Burma) for the first time recently and was touched by the genuine warmth and friendliness of the Burmese people. Tourism is still in its infancy here and the locals are as intrigued by foreigners as we are interested in them. Beaming smiles from faces painted with thanaka, the traditional sunscreen/makeup, greeted us at Ahara Thuka market outside the new capital of Nay Pyi Taw, where I captured this group of children looking after each other. The market was bustling with industrious families working together and offered and window in the life of the hard-working rural community.

The power of nature is an alluring attraction (I visited White Is earlier this year) but is always unpredictable. My blog post may give you a perspective on this regularly visited active volcano.

Some friendly locals heading to Church Point in their tinnier kindly offered us a ride, but we were just doing a tourist round trip. #pittwater #boatinglife #tidesreachDogs of Pittwater. This doggie resides next door to @tidesreach and when his owner left without him he waited on the jetty, sometimes climbing into the the pretty red dinghy at the end. #faithfuldog #pittwaterlife #dogsofinsta #tidesreach #dogslifeHow cute are the ferry wharves on Pittwater? This is Carols wharf on Scotland Island. While staying @tidesreach we did a round trip on the ferry from nearby Elvina Bay. So interesting watching life on the water. #tidesreach #pittwater #pittwaterlifeSunset over McCarrs Creek as seen from the deck of @tidesreach on a relaxing weekend getaway. #pittwater #sunset_love #tidesreach
