Travel to Burma aka Myanmar

It was a brief but rewarding visit to this (almost) tourist free land before the recent chain of events.  Back then Burma was under the watchful eye of big brother aka the Burmese military machine.  Our movements were restricted and recorded in a manner I never thought possible e.g. Surrender passport at border. Register at local police station at each location visited. 

These images and the reception we received as strange outsiders will likely be soon lost forever as the country embraces democracy, freedom and mainstream tourism. I'm glad we got to experience the former but also glad the people of Burma will hopefully be better off, free from the shackles of military oppression.
