Myanmar Days [Part 2]

Here’s a quick update on my time Myanmar (which is quickly coming to an end, for now). Two weeks ago I shared some pictures from my first several days in the country. Since then I have started to do some pretesting for a questionnaire I will be developing on the economics of hope in rural Myanmar. I have hope (hope 2) that this will be able to contribute to my masters thesis.

More on that will be discussed and shared later. For now, I’d like to share some pictures.

  1. Thanks for the update, friend. Great to see first hand the new experiences you are having. Can’t wait to hear more about the study and your (initial) findings!
