This is the tale of many attempted entries into Burma to meet the people living

This is the tale of many attempted entries into Burma to meet the people living life in political oppression. Unfortunately, the two visas that were granted came with limited timeframes.
The first one barely allowed a whistle-stop tour of basic city centers, where we saw what they allowed us to see. Next up, a visit to the Three Parallel Rivers region of Yunnan Province, China, bordering North-East Burma. Scaled Jade Dragon Snow Mountain at 5,500 meters and descended Tiger Leaping Gorge, the deepest of its kind in the world, but Burma access denied. Made a deal to hitch-hike and navigate the mighty Mekong River from The Golden Triangle to the Vietnam Delta, with an acquired taste diet of garlic and diesel, plus a quick insight in following the footsteps of a want-to-be Siddhartha disciple.
An extended second visa into the new Myanmar gave time necessary to discover and meet the underground organizations of Academic and Business Management schools and assist them with their foreign networking and correspondence. As usual, there is never a dull moment. A lot can happen when you decide to become an ex-pat, teach in a Thai school and buy a bar. And even stranger things can happen when you travel in countries where you have to play charades to order some dinner. This book is filled with funny stories, quirky people, and incredibly stupendous situations.
This is the third book of the Road Diaries chronicles and it's time to reassess where the hell I am at, and to consider decorating it with the stuff I have accumulated over the years.
