There will be a longer post about what I've been doing here in Yangon, and I'm a bit hesitant to put up an open post after we've had three excellent posts, but I'm getting ready to leave and I am marveling at the fact that Burma is looking, at least from a distance, like an island of stability compared to Thailand and Vietnam. Here in Yangon, not everyone is so sanguine though. The next election cycle is 2015, and no one really takes anything for granted. Not sure what the feeling is in Vietnam, but I start working on an August teachers seminar at Hue University, which takes a large number of Chinese students in June (our usual conference time, but this year, we've pushed it back to August)
At any rate, Southeast Asia or, as per usual, anything else, though do check out the other posts.
