I spent about 3 weeks in Burma (currently known as Myanmar) between August 30 and September 18, 2000. It was a fantastic trip, and I took some very extensive notes on my Palm Pilot with keyboard attachment. I also took lots of photos with a Canon Elph digital camera. I hope you enjoy them! Please send any feedback or comments to sylvia@vasilik.com.
