Here's a recent NY Times article on Myanmar's tourism "industry." A Japanese friend of mine took a trip there in 2002, and I have posted her photos below. For those interested in temples and Buddhism and life as it was in Asia forty to fifty years ago, Myanmar remains a treasure. The video I embedded is truly breathtaking.
A Burmese-American lady who works here in Asheville brought back some tea from her last trip to Myanmar, making us very happy.
