A short trip to Yangon, and Kyaikhtiyo Pagoda in Mon state, Myanmar - 22-24 Jan 2012
We did a short trip to Myanmar/Burma during one of our weekends holidays in January 2012. In a four day quick tour of Yangon and Kyaikhtiyo pagoda we made a brief visit to Yangon University campus, its technical school, Shwedagon pagoda, the Yangon river front where we talked to the workers on board a boat, night street. On the other day we took a bus to the hill-top pagoda in Mon state.
From our four day whirl wind trip we find that the beautiful country is in serious need of proper public education of all context for every citizen. Myanmar peoples need to work smart, learn hard and must try constantly to produce necessary goods, services and management of their own country. Lots of peoples are on the short cut ways to make money and they are losing their dignity, beauty, culture, education, mental and physical health, and ownership. Lots of social problems will follow suit.
We from their neighboring countries must help them to help themselves.
