Which One's Pink?

The Search for the Pink-headed Duck in Burma.

Trip 3: Every Which Way You Can't. Add Video

Civil war between the government and the Kachin Independence Army (the KIA) closed off all trips upriver to Banmaw in Kachin State. They didn't say anything about bicycles, though! A return to the Kachin swamps north of Banmaw, a ghastly road accident and a trip downriver with wounded soldiers made this the most eventful trip to date. The trip culminated in a trip out to Kule lake, near Singu in Mandalay Division: the exact lake where the penultimate wild pink-headed duck was collected in Burma in 1908.
