such as Inle Lake,
a peaceful and tranquil oasis, where people still live in harmony with
nature. But also dotted with 1000 stupas all around. If you want to have a
break of all the traveling there are the pristine beaches in
Western Myanmar. In Western
Myanmar there is also the magical city of
Mrauk U. It has some resemblance with Bagan, but more rustic
and with only a few tourists. In Bagan the temples are the main
attraction, but in Mrauk U it is the whole scene and the people.
Update 2011-10-09: I am very happy that it
looks like the democracy is really
improving according to several articles at BBC World
News. The Burmese, I have met, are beautiful people and the
country is amazing. I want to give a tribute to
Aung San Suu Kyi, one of these
wonderful people, who stand so strong for what they see as right
and are able to convey it to so many. But also to
News, because their continuous coverage has influenced many
people in the West for this cause.
Pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi's party has won a
landslide victory in by-elections, local election
officials have confirmed.
heartiest congratulations to
Aung San Suu Kyi and all the freedom and peace loving people of
2012-05-01. I am so happy again to see that it looks
like the democracy process in Myanmar has passed a point
of no-return (for a moment I have been afraid because
the 'oath' question).
A highlight for
me also has been the visit of Ban
Ki-moon to Myanmar and the praise he has given to
Aung San Suu Kyi. Does she not look radiant on this
A lot of
countries are now easing their sanctions, so a new and
bright future is now possible for this wonderful country
and the Burmese people. They are all in my heart.
I saw today 23-9-2012 on BBC2 an one hour
beautiful documentary over Aung San Suu Kyi
and I admire her even more.
I want to give one important quote of her:
Just wanting something isn't enough.
You must know how to get it.
You must also dare to do it
and be able to do it.
