I have not been back to Yangon/Rangoon, Myanmar/Burma since 1998 when I rolled through with gonzo journo extraordinaire Pepe Escobar – great to see the upgrades, but wonderful to see the use of thanaka (a yellowish-white cosmetic paste made from ground bark) has not been crushed under the wheels of modernity.
