Monks at a pagoda down a dusty road. Young curious eyes following your steps from a ramshackle school in the hills. A bike ride through the temples of Bagan in the early mornings mist. A trek into mountains of yesterday north of Mandalay. Old men in Longyi skirts, whispering of todays news at colonial teashops. Slowness, hope, and many questions to be asked. Burma, awaits you, entangles you, and stays in you. Forever!
About Burma Burma, now Myanmar, is unknown to most people, yet most people have an imagination of Burma. The fight for freedom, Aung San Sui Kyi, welcoming smiles, old British colonial hotels, a fragile bamboo bridge, the Shwedagon Pagoda, weather beaten faces and home rolled cigars. You name it. Mandalay, Bagan and Inle Lake. Places you might recognize. From pictures, stories from other travelers, love poetry, and dreaming songs about old beauty.
