    1. I visited Myanmar in 2010 and travelled up into the north to Myitkyina by train Spent several days travelling down the Irrawaddy River on a local river boat In Bergan I met a local who took me to a village school where I donated books and pencils to the school and got to teach a grade 2class I m a school principal when not travelling I slept in a teak Buddhist temple between Kalaw and Inle Lake I loved my time in this unique country with its beautiful people While travelling I read George Orwell [...]

This is a fabulous book that I found quite by accident it is free for download at wowio Amy Tan s Saving Fish From Drowning got me interested in Burma so I was happy to read this travel account memoir from Australian journalist Olszewski.I m so glad I did It was fascinating, made even so by Olszewski s great personality and sense of humor He describes social customs, language and cultural barriers, spirituality, traditions and politics in modern Myanmar with such flair and style that I found my [...]

    6. A has to be read book, before even discussing any politics about Myanmar.Visited this amazing country, with its true genuine people Lets not ruin it westerners
