Burma

Union of Myanmar
 

 

Burma, Birma, Myanmar, three different names for a country that you can travel quite good individually in the meantime.
We visited this fascinating land of the golden pagodas now a second
 time and were curious to see what has changed since our first visit in 2001. At that time it was a journey into the past, everything was still primitive and there were no western influences. This time it was very different, we wondered about large billboards, Internet cafes, department stores and the heavy traffic in the cities. Of course we were aware of the political situation, but we really wanted to visit again this wonderful country with its friendly and curious people.
