The boys are back in Burma (Myanmar) in search of “Cyrts” (Cyrtodactylus) for our ongoing research on the landscape genomics of karst adapted geckos in the Salween basin. In an attempt to get over jet lag, we stuffed ourselves with thai food and spent the afternoon doing some sightseeing around the Bogyoke Market, the Strand waterfront, and the Sule Pagoda.
