Off to Thailand and Myanmar (Burma)
By Barbarahughes on December 29, 2013
Happy New Year! We will be on our way to Bangkok on New Years eve and day. We spend 2 days in Bangkok, then fly to Mandalay for a river cruise down Myanmar to Yangon (used to be Rangoon) Then back to Bangkok. I was involved in a yearly college weekend where all the foriegn students from then Burma, gathered for cultural events. I learned Burmese dancing. I've had a love for the country ever since. This is my first trip. It will be a good experince to be in a mostly Buddhist country and learn about that.
We had a lovely Christmas (actually it still IS Christmas till Jan 6) with our family. I feel very blessed this year by so much. And long for all people to live in peace and justice. We can only work for it one day at a time.
