Great foxy 2020-12-17 11:20

Hello Ronny,
It's wonderful story - the beginning till the end.
You met a stranger as a guide , as the days went by, the friendship is bond , the hospitality he and his family showed to you is priceless. Clearly shown in these photos esp the WS1. Yeah, you do look very comfortable and the happy bunch of smiling girls , they're more interested in the 'angry birds' except one girl with a rabbit headband. One thing for sure, they all have 'thanaka' on their cheeks.
Surprisingly, you were not wearing longyi like Myo:-)
What you're giving is not much in $ but it meant a lot to him and his family. That's show , you've big heart.
I know that Myanmar is beautiful and interesting country but what's put me off , the ongoing conflict of Rohingya people.
Thanks for sharing this pleasant family.

Default To foxy: Rohingya

Hello Loong!
You are right about the Rohingya , as I wrote to my reply to Beverly.
This is the most traced ethnic minority in the world and nobody wants to have them in their country.
I met many of them in the north of Myanmar, Rakhine state, Sittwe and Mrauk U ,close to the border to Bangladesh.Very friendly people! I `m following the news about refugee camps there and the horrible circumstances , now even worse in Corona times .
buddhist people are large minded and I don`t understand this conflict with muslim people. I think it is government made.
Travelling in Myanmar I allways took care about supporting locals.
So I stayed in by locals run guesthouses and had food in basic restaurants.
Thank you and best regards,Ronny
