A few words by Stan
"I have travelled extensively over the past 20 years and the exhibition represents some of the countries I have seen"
There is an emphasis of Burma (Myanmar) which I have visited 7 times in the last eight years.
I am President of the Royal Burma Society and the exhibition is in aid of the charity "The Royal Burma Trust" which supports schools in Bagan, Burma.
