Day 30

“Road in Himalayas”.  Oil on gessoed paper.
Having spent 22 days in Nepal, doing Annapurna Circuit, I accumulate a lot of photos, which are now a pale reminder of all this sublime beauty of the mountains, as well as dirt, poverty, tiredness and altitude sickness, which one tends to gladly forget at the end of the trip.

Day 23

“Houses on River Kwai”

On our Eastern and Oriental Express train trip from Singapore to Bangkok, one of the stops was Kanchanaburi, at the famous Bridge where Burma Railway crosses the river Kwai. It is a lot of confusion about which bridge was used in a movie with the same name, but in any case the bridge is intersting and surroundings  are picturesque.Oil on gessoed paper, 6″x 4″

 

 

Day 20

“Abandoned”

This is Yangon. The ex-capital is full of majestic colonial buildings, built by the British long time ago, which now stood abandoned, discolored, blackened by time and tropical downpours, surrounded by overgrown gardens, with birds flying freely in and out of empty eye sockets of the windows.
