About this blog
I'm gunna try (for a change) to keep a blog as I travel and update it regularly. Let's see how long that works. Just quick updates of basic stuff. May not be up everyone's alley. With the Lonely Planet's Thorntree forum down, hopefully this might provide advice for other people trying to travel independently and spontaneous in Burma rather than on planned itineraries; though I by no means claim to have authoritative information on the subject!
