A Hell of a Ride: The Gokteik Viaduct.

The Lashio Mail from Mandalay creeps across the Gokteik Viaduct at a snails pace. The Steel structure moans, groans and twists under the weight of the passing train. An unforgettable ride. Built in 1903 by the Pennsylvania Steel co. It enabled the British occupiers to rob the Burmese of their natural resources at a much quicker pace...Today, it's a must do for visitors invading the once secluded land...

Raising of the Craft. Taungyii Balloon Festival. Burma.

After unfolding the Balloon, these dudes run inside and while some guy props it up with a stick, other people come in with torches and start filling it up with Hot Air. The Women in the foreground light the votive candles that will eventually be attached to the sides of balloon in a decorative pattern.

Steer Clear of LadyBoys!

These gendernauts coat their deceitful bosoms in a potent goo capable of knocking out an Elephant...thus subdued the victims are unburdened of their a$$et$ before being ceremoniously dumped in the fetid canals... No Thanks for the Mammaries!

Rocket Shield

When a Balloon goes Bonkers and crashes onto the Crowd, you're lucky if one of these shield guys are nearby. They'll take the brunt of the outcoming blasts to protect the public. The Non stop Blitz of the entire payload can last a good 10 minutes!
