This is Burma, and it will be quite unlike any land you know about . . .” wrote Rudyard Kipling in 1898. And it is still true today, nearly 120 years later. We always thought about going there but with a military regime in place it was very much frowned upon. Now after a new government is in place we couldn't resist and spend some "Burmese Days" to quote another famous writer, George Orwell.
