    So isolated, so enigmatic and utterly attractive. I want to go to Myanmar in a couple of years’ time. Many years ago my family and I managed to visit the country for a day, led by an aunt from Thailand. We needed no passport or visa, but were asked to act and behave like the locals which we did with no fanfare.

    If I am lucky, I may get to Myanmar and Laos this year.

    You went for one day with no passport? How quaint :~)

    Oh wow! I sure hope you do make it! I can’t get enough of that part of the world and will never get tired of visiting.

    When I was little, our family used to cross the border into Thailand with no passport either. My uncle (dad’s sister’s husband) was a senator in southern Thailand, and he would send his entourage to pick us up from the border, jeep and officers in uniform and all. You can imagine how big a deal it was for a kid! :)
