Good news from Myanmar

I have been attentively following the news of all the countries I plan to visit next year.

Some months ago I was worried about the increasing instability in Central Asia or Thailand, for instance.

But just recently things seem to get better in Myanmar, little by little.

Myanmar has been suffering a military dictatorship for a long time but last week supposedly democractical elections were held.
The main opposition party boycotted the event, though.

Now we're surprised by the release of the main opposition leader, the pro-democracy fighter and Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi.

Changes for good, we will see their outcome.

Surely it will be easier to travel there now that the situation seems to improve, despite long steps are yet to be taken in that regard.
Many people were against travelling to Myanmar while the dictatorship lasted, because that would have been helping them economically.

Myanmar is definitely one of the countries in Asia that I cannot avoid visiting, for I have been longing to see its marvels and taste its language & culture since many years ago.
