July 2011: It’s a little surreal …sitting in my Rangoon hotel room watching opposition leader, Aung San Suu Kyi deliver her secretly recorded Reith Lectures on the BBC. Downstairs in the lobby and on the streets things appear much the same as they have for decades... The land of ‘Big Brother.’

Welcome to the… Burmese Daze
