Photo of the Day (10.17.09)

I’ve said it several times, and I will say it again: Myanmar is a beautiful place. Go there.

The Burmese people are some of the most earnest people I’ve met on my travels. Despite the continued political strife in the country and the devastating cyclone that swept through the coast over a year ago, Myanmar is among the world’s unique and well-preserved places.

This photo of two young female monks comes to us from our dedicated reader, Lady Expat, who now calls southeast Asia her home. If you have some great travel shots you’d like to share, be sure to upload them to the Gadling pool on Flickr. We might just pick one as our Photo of the Day!
