My theme this year is Burma AKA Myanmar. I used to live in Laos, so this was a return to Southeast Asia that I looked forward to. I spent a little over three weeks exploring this country, learning about its culture: its history, religion, and language. I thought others might enjoy a bit of what I learned and see some of what I saw. So here we go. . .
Bagan is the land of a ten thousand stupas and temples. And I’d call it the Switzerland of Burma. It’s immaculate. Signs along the road read, A Non-Plastic Bag Area. And, for the most part, it is.

Bamboo sprouts everywhere in Burma and at an alarming rate. It can grow 2-3′ in a single day. See how it shot up just while Wyn was telling us how fast bamboo grows.
