Photos: Best of Sri Lanka work for UMCOR

These are some of my favorite photos from a collection of nearly five hundred, taken in March 2013 in North Eastern Sri Lanka on assignment for UMCOR.  I visited village groups, mostly with women members, who saved together in micro-finance and small savings programs, and visited the farming, animal husbandry, businesses, fishing, and other projects they had been able to finance with loans from the micro-finance groups.  The people were happy, beautiful and friendly – it was a lovely visit, and yielded some magnificent photography.

I spent a wonderful few days in the hill station town of Kalaw, cool and green at 1400 meters, in the mountainous Shan State of NE Myanmar.  Then I hiked for three days form Kalaw to Inle Lake, accompanied by four other male tourists, and our guide, a young local woman.  The trek was beautiful, and strenuous.  We saw amazing views, passed through villages with a variety of ethnic groups, and in the evening at yummy food and stayed in the homes of villagers.

I spent a week exploring Kep and Kampot by dirt bike with my friends Fredrik and Karen. We had a great time, cruising along dirt roads lining rice paddies, through small villages and visiting remote temples. We also spent a couple nights resting on beautiful, quiet Koh Tonsai. It was a great adventure, filled with wonderful interactions with locals, interesting food, mishaps with the bikes breaking down, and beautiful sites and vistas.

For the grand finale, we drove to the top of Bokor, leaving Kampot at 5:20AM, and arriving just as the sun crested the horizon.
