Burma is awesome. Well, it was when I was there about 10 years ago. We saw not a single other American during our travels there (always a good sign ;) - mostly locals and visitors from Asian countries, a few Europeans. A few rough edges here and there and some frustrating old-style bureaucracy, but otherwise a lovely country with wonderful people (not counting the government goons at the time). In the capital, we saw very little motorized vehicle traffic - mostly bicycles, oxcarts and people on foot - looked like what I expect a city in China was like in 1950. Giant, Stalinesque propaganda bilboards ( "The People's Desire: Resist Foreign Stooges and Interference in the State's Affairs!"). Amazingly friendly people and incredible sights. High heat & humidity, not much air con. We loved the place. Go soon, before the 7-11s and Pizza Huts move in.
