serota This man, with his amazing stick-poke tattoos, stopped me on the street to compliment my longyi. I took the opportunity to see what else he had going on. Not shown is a 969 tattoo on the back of his neck, symbolizing his sympathy with the nationalist, anti-Muslim movement. Lurking beneath many of the beautiful people of Myanmar is an undercurrent that has been equated to neo-nazism. A reminder to take nothing at face value. Keep your eyes open, kids. 5d

serota At the Pakkoku Pagoda Festival, we rode a human-powered Ferris wheel. As Myanmar develops, labor as capital will likely become more scarce, and mechanisation will prevail. We are watching it happen with agriculture; for my sake I'm glad it hasn't yet happened for carnival rides. 2w

serota An upside to spending lots of time on the road is returning home to a new season and new things to try at old haunts. Summertime is creeping into Austin, and this fine beverage officiates it. A mini pitcher of Stiegl Radler with a shot of el Jimador, served up by friend @joshuation. Cheers, Austin! 1mon
