Burmese journeys continue despite explosion
The Monday assault followed similar homemade equipment blastings on Friday in a Taungoo guest house in which two men were reportedly murdered and two more in Rangoon on Sunday. Who was behind the bombings was not clear, but three men are said to have been interrogated by the po-liff.
Their opinions were confirmed by Amrit Singh, the CEO of TransIndus, another Burma expert. Following the explosion, the Foreign Office has up-dated its council and issued a warning of a "high terrorist threat" in Burma. Minor blasts often happened in the 50 years that Burma was under army control and were generally associated with anti-government students' militia defenders or violent ethnical insurgents.
National League for Democracy (NLD) head Aung San Suu Kyi asked the administration to find out who was behind the recent terrorist attack, but asked the general population to stay serene.
Back into the past as you travel around the stilts built around the swimming towns of the tranquil Lake Inle on a ship. Is there a name that is more inspiring than Mandalay? Packed with treasure and on the Irrawaddy River at the base of Mandalay Hill, Burma's last regal capitol, more than does justice to the almost mythic name.
Visiting nearby towns and market places to get an insight into living in the countryside of Myanmar (Burma). Take a small river boat to discover the swimming towns and parks of Lake Inle and see how the natives are living. A lot of visitors come to the cloisters to see Myanmar Abbeys, but a trip to a nearby convent to enjoy lunches with the indigenous monastics and find out more about their way of living on Sagaing Hill, outside Mandalay, is an memorable one.
Maybe a remnant of the British, Myanmar (Burma) has an affinity for infusions and a visit to a teahouse is a quite indigenous one.
