Returning to a Relaxed Rangoon

7 Jan 2013

RANGOON—After navigating chaotic lines for a visa at Burma’s embassy in Bangkok, 
I finally caught my AirAsia flight. A group of several dozen Thai Buddhist pilgrims 
boarded alongside me: They were joining a program of activities in Rangoon 
to commemorate the arrival of a famous Buddhist teacher’s ancestors 
in Burma 135 years ago.
