Blogger Jotman goes inside Burma

This week I was in Burma. I spoke to Burmese students, Buddhist monks, businessmen, tradesmen, and leaders within the Muslim and Christian communities.

Every evening, across Burma, millions of Burmese tune their shortwave radios to into Voice of American and BBC to get the local news. I listened to VOA with a Burmese family. The VOA broadcast is in Burmese, and the announcer is reporting that the United Nations Special Liaison to Myanmar, Gambari, is in Indonesia.

Much more to come.
