Postcards from original paintings by U Ba Kyi, at the Strand Hotel, Rangoon, Burma
U Ba Kyi (17 July 1912 – 15 April 2000) studied for a year at the Beaux Arts de Paris and he also studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. He managed to weave together the western style with the traditional Burmese style. He painted murals and watercolors and his work is exhibited around the world. These paintings he did for the Strand Hotel show the lighter side of Burmese character.
Well, the Alamo is still here but didn’t exactly match my memories – but the riverwalk is vastly improved and impressive. Found The Landing and will go there one evening. Warm and breezy – not too humid. See you soon!
The Alamo. Originally a chapel attached to SanAntonio de Valero and possibly other missions, the Alamo was the site of a massacre of Texans by Mexican forces in 1836. The word Alamo means a poplar tree or cottonwood.
Grand finale to a grand tour. 1. The Tusker (beer) is still good to wash the Namibian sands away before returning to the Sahara. Like Namibia better. Are we ever going to hear from you again? 2. Artichokes,… and … – all things you take for granted now – well I guess there are benefits to being deprived 11 months out of 12! Let us know how your are and what you are up to.
