Birding in Burma


Partners Asia’s donor birding tour that took place in January to February 2013 produced over 200 different birds and a great deal of bonding with two distinct groups. One group came from the Seattle area and the other from the San Francisco area, with one stray from Portland/Hawaii. Our two groups became one cohesive and compatible company very early on. We did bird-watching and touring in many different areas of the country including Yangon, Mt. Victoria (at 10,500 feet, the […]

But it wasn’t until my return to Burma – Myanmar that I finally understood the dazzle of English teaching. I flew to rural Shan State to visit Buddhist nunneries where women and girls are robed in pinks with […]
