You will notice that I have removed my last post regarding water and sanitation in Southern Chin State. I have made the decision to remove the text after being reminded by a colleague about the potential and largely unforeseen risks/consequences of revealing actual living conditions in certain regions of this country. Though I have tried to be non-political so as not to draw attention to myself or our staff, it is inevitable that the posts could be misconstrued by the wrong people at the wrong time. The consequences for my friends here and CARE's interventions and our beneficiaries in Chin State are too much to risk. I have decided to keep my blog postings purely personal and will follow up on other writings after departing Myanmar. I hope you can continue to visit and enjoy this blog. I will keep it as blithely entertaining and informative as possible. And so, in this misanthropic spirit, I'll post some silly and inconsequential photos.
