(Like all recommended slideshows, take a look through these before showing the kids.)
Flickr.com’s Myanmar slideshow presents the country not as a stagnant nation stuck in the past, but as a living, breathing land where life
— albeit mainly rural — goes boldly forward despite political and economic struggles. Travelers who blog their Myanmar experiences confirm this, eager to share their photos to compliment their entries on Travelpod’s “Travel Blogs from Myanmar” page. (For example, take a look at Christina’s account of her visit to the Padaung,) Speaking of struggles, Time.com’s online photo essay “Burma:
Decades of Dissent,” presents images from over twenty years of pro-democracy activism, from the 8888 Uprising to the 2007 protests led by monks and beyond.
