Stefan absolutely loved doing this but made a bit of a fool of himself because it’s not technically a kiss, but more a sucking sound into your mouth which is very similar to a kiss.Sebastien was a bit more shy about using this charming method to engage with Burmese waiters: Myanmar is comprised of many different ethnic groups and tribes, each with their own unique traditions. For example, in the Northern Chin states, women used to have their faces tattooed, but this practice was banned in the 1960s.Always use your right hand when shaking hands or passing something to someone, as the left hand is traditionally used for toilet ablutions; however, locals do use their left hand to “support” their right arm when shaking hands.Most people in the country are Buddhist although there are significant Muslim and Christian minorities.We spent 3 weeks in Myanmar in January 2015 and instantly fell in love with the people.The Burmese were very curious towards us foreigners but extremely friendly and welcoming.Homosexuality is, however, technically illegal in Myanmar – for tourists as well as locals – and punishable by fines or imprisonment, but this is rarely enforced in practice.

Over the years, the weight of the brass pushes the women’s collar bone down, compressing their rib cage.These supernatural beings take an interest in the actions of humans, and may need to be propitiated.Considering the social conservatism of Myanmar’s society it is interesting to note that while in the past most (spirit festival) held, for example, at the start of a new business enterprise is an occasion on which people have license to sing, cheer and show emotions which would otherwise be repressed in public.We knew nothing about Myanmar before our trip and watched the Luc Besson film called “The Lady” about Aung San Suu Kyi’s life to learn more.We highly recommend it to anyone visiting for their first time.
