Burma and Beyond (An Evening with Willie Weir)
Myanmar (Burma) is all over the news. It is listed in several publications as one of the top travel destinations. Barack Obama recently became the first sitting US president to visit. Makes you want to go, doesn't it?
What about cycling in Myanmar? How open is the country now? Where can you travel? Is it worth the expense?
Well, Willie Weir just finished a bike trip in Burma (along with his wife Kat Marriner). They were tossed out of a monastery, and hosted by the police. They were greeted by a bazillion friendly people, and never once chased by a dog. They passed hundreds of ox carts and witnessed President Obama's motorcade zip by on the streets of Yangon.
Come see the images (Laos and Cambodia too) and hear the stories from a man who is pedaling slower, but steadier.
