Sunset in Myanmar

Bagan, Myanmar

Bagan, Myanmar

January 31st, 2021

Sad news out of Myanmar where the military has staged a coup, assumed power and declared a state of emergency for one year. It’s a strange thing when this happens to a fragile country one has visited before. I think of the horse cart driver, the palm farmer and his family, the people we met running hotels and restaurants in Yangon and Bagan. How will this affect them, in a place already so economically challenged while also in the middle of a pandemic? It’s astonishing how much life can change in one day, anywhere in the world.

More tomorrow,
