July 27: A Month in Myanmar - Incredible!
Christi spent July traveling through Myanmar (Burma). This devoutly Buddhist country is considered a pariah state and is heavily sanctioned by the UN, deterring many from visiting. It's not hard to find oneself the only foreigner in town, and the people here are the warmest and most hospitable one could imagine. Travel is difficult, with long rides on worn-out buses and washed-out, unpaved roads; but the smiles and curiosity of the people, who are eager to play host in their country, make any discomfort a mere afterthought.
