Yangon, Myanmar

Yangon (formerly Rangoon) is one of the more interesting major cities we have been too. The electricity only works about half the time. The buses are made mostly of wood, and many of the temples predate the birth of Christ. We arrived in time for the annual water festival to celebrate the new year. A short walk into the neighborhood around our guesthouse led us to a family sitting in front of a school. They quickly hailed one of the teacher who could speak English and for three days we sat and ate a variety of Burmese delicacies. We still send them postcards, hoping that they will make it through the government screening of all mail.
