2016 has definitely been an exhausting year, and somehow humbling. The end of it is bringing some time off, and time for reflection. As I travel around southern Thailand and parts of Poland, some very disturbing news keep on coming from Jordan, Turkey, Russia, Switzerland, Germany and indeed my native Poland. I wished that at least the end of December is ‘less exciting’, but I guess it is not meant to be. At least, my break appears to be ‘more traditional’ and allows for some relaxation and happy chats with people that are important to me!
October 2016 has brought a new wave of violence in Myanmar. As a result thousand of oppressed and persecuted Rohingyas have fled the trouble region of Rakhine (Myanmar) to Bangadesh’s Cox’s Bazar. This gallery shows some pictures from various parts of this region of Bangladesh, where the refugees are.
