Viaje a las minas de Mogok, Birmania, en Noviembre 2014

Sólo quedan 5 plazas disponibles a para un viaje a Birmania organizado por los conservadores del Museo de Historia Natural del Condado de Los Ángeles. El grupo será de sólo unas 20 personas y tendremos permiso para el acceso a las minas de Mogok y, por supuesto, vamos a hacer un poco de turismo así como visitar algunos mercados de gemas y minerales. Nos encargaremos de todo en Birmania (transportes internos en avión o automóvil, hoteles, comidas…) pero el vuelo para llegar allí no está incluido (así la gente puede venir desde cualquier parte). Será un viaje divertido ¡únete a nosotros!

Hey, Isn't this where there is a Bridge over the River, Kwai?

There is such a railway: the Siam-Burma Railway (from Tenasserim into Thailand). It is not fictional and neither are some of the stories of its building. Two movies, the famous "Bridge on the River Kwai" and more recently, "The Railway Man", borrow from this part of history. The latter is based on true events but the former is fictionalized and with the exception of the premise that British soldiers were forced to work on the railway, bears little resemblance to actual facts according to many (read the Wikipedia entry on historical parallels for the movie "Bridge on the River Kwai").

However, all irrelevant to this trip, which is concentrating on areas to the north.

Certainly looks like a fine trip, bridge or not! I had just had mental pictures of geologists in forced mine labor being filmed as a leadership study posing as a war film! I was wonder who would play Colonel Jordi?
