Burma had been top of my list of lands to visit for so long that when Aung San Suu Kyi invited foreign tourists to travel to her beloved land I made my arrangements. I knew I would view such contrasting sights and if anything I left so much more confused about the country, formally known as Myanmar.
So many people I met were friendly, naturally shy, but rather naïve of what was perhaps to come. Desperate to please but scared of what new wealth could do to old tradition. The deeper you explored into the country the more you gained a sense of the country, the smells, sounds, sights and colour.
