“This is a wonderful trip with an inspired itinerary, something I would like to shout from the rafters. I had been to Myanmar before in 2002, but I gained so much more from this second visit and the chance to see parts of Myanmar that were off limits in 2002. My only regret is that there were only four of us on this remarkable trip. ”
