Myanmar was a really amazing experience and I was so glad I went. I saw no military presence during my trip, only wonderful warm and friendly people. I would go now before it changes!!
I loved the traditional dress (or longyi). Both men and women wear a long skirt which is practical with the tropical heat. Different patterns and colors are found in different regions of the country. Everyone wears flip flops or sandals.
The colonial architecture of Yangon (Rangoon). Most are a little neglected which reminds me a lot of Havana Cuba.
The food. I loved the food! I could eat papaya at every meal since it is so amazing. The morning glory (like spinach) was my favorite.
To sum up this amazing experience:
Monks in red
Blessings of long life
Beautiful children with large brown eyes waiving goodbye from their school
Chanting and music permeating the air
A wonderful festival and small village for lunch
