President Obama has just announced that Hillary Clinton will visit Myanmar, formerly Burma, to see if the US and Myanmar can begin to normalize relations. I have been interested in this mysterious country for many years. For those of you who wish to begin learning more, I suggest two books: Burmese Days by George Orwell and Saving Fish From Drowning by Amy Tan. Myanmar is a country of approximately 60 million people located between India/Bangladesh on the west, Thailand on the east and China to the north.
