Under the dragon by Rory MacLean

Written when Burma was just opening up to the world again, this is both an insight into the lives of ordinary Burmese, and a journey to find the makers of an ancient woven basket. Along the way the author encounters a psychotic warlord and a wise monk, but it is the optimistic spirit o the people, despite adversity that stands out, as i discovered on my recent trip there. 76/100
