Let's find out. The current list will be kept above in this post

We need a couple of rules though and here it is.

#1 - You have to have visited the country in the most recent post, before you can add a country. A photo of both countries is desirable but not essential.

#2 - If your post is not responded to in 7 days, you may add another country and receive a point. The points are worthless.

I will get things started.

Country #1 is Myanmar

Here I am before crossing from Thailand into Myanmar.

Here is the old border on a bridge from Mai Sai into Myanmar. It looks different now.

Attachment 269749

I stayed just long enough to take this picture.

Attachment 269750

I'll bet these folks never expected to show up on a baseball card forum.

If you have been to Myanmar, what is county #2?

Well Frank...not sure we can cover the whole world here on net54...but probably 3/4 atleast!!!!! When I read this post the other day I thought Thailand was the country...and I was ready to play! Unfortunately I had planned to go to Myanmar but my dad got sick and I had to cancel...does that count?????

I was in Burma in 1981 and did the Rangoon, Pagan, Mandalay route. Temples, leg-rowers and beautiful tour guides.

Next country: India

(Sorry, no way to scan pix)

I was in India for about two weeks in December 2015 and January 2016. Saw a bunch of the tourist traps (Taj Mahal, Golden Temple) and some factories. I will try to post a few pictures later. We flew Emirates, with a layover in country #3, the UAE.

There were only two rules, both of which have been broken, but that's okay. Perhaps they were too restrictive. If no one objects, I will add Denny's list to the first post and add a few more of my own.

Pictures are always welcome and new countries will be welcomed. Getting to two hundred countries with the original rules would take forever.
