Myanmar’s Paletwa Township: A Photo Essay

Bobby Anderson captures Myanmar’s Paletwa Township in Chin State, and parts of neighboring Rakhine.

Bobby Anderson, author of a recent Tea Circle series on Paletwa, frequently finds himself on the Kaladan, in both Chin and Rakhine: some of what he is lucky to see there is found in the photo essay below.
