masala: the international spice
Flavor your world with masala

Thursday, March 17

So today we hit up the Shwe Dagon (SHWEY-da-gone).

Burma is a tightly controlled country as there is hardly ANY outside influence. They have their own telephone network which doesn't work with any other GSM providers, they banned sales of DVDs and movies, and there is NO public internet. I'm just special that I get access to make this lovely post. It costs $7.27/min to call the states from our hotel.
