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 a bit about its culture: its history, religion, and language. I thought others might enjoy some of what I learned and see some of what I saw.

Cats are not frequent in Burma. If you see one, you’d rather not because they are the saddest creatures. Dogs, on the other hand are everywhere. Most are feral. Some are not. They all look like the village dogs of old. There’s is a hard existence, and I imagine their life expectancy is about four years in the cities, maybe a bit more in the country or at monasteries.
