As I’m writing this, a colleague of mine is still in Yangon (Rangoon). He called yesterday to assure us that he’s fine. Well, we all know of the news about this poor country. What followed was unprecedented. To think that all the monks wanted was just an apology. Things got worse today.
My colleague is having second thoughts of leaving Yangon. He has an obligation to finish his study here in Perth but he would be leaving his family behind with his country deteriorating day after day. He’s arriving tomorrow… maybe.
