Myanmar: Birthday Wishes Part 2 (video)


Today is my 46th birthday, October 18, 2013. Last year, I donated my birthday to raise money for Solar Cookers. I asked friends in Myanmar to help me have 45 people say Happy Birthday to me in 45 languages!

What do I want for my birthday this year?

I would love you to BUY OUR BOOK! Traveling in Sin or share it with a friend!

WATCH34 Festival and Birthday Wishes Part 2, Myanmar (Burma)

October 18-20, 2012 We enjoyed the preparations for the Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda Festival and more singing birthday wishes on the Lake and all around town. I loved the chocolate banana pancake at Pancake Kingdom! I ate it for lunch twice!

George took me to Green Chili Thai restaurant for dinner. For my 45th birthday I worked with JWW to donate solar cookers to refugee families in Darfur. Thank you so much to everyone who participated. Together we collected enough money to help 50 families.

Birthday wishes from Australia, Germany, France, Myanmar, Thailand and USA! My article about the festival in print The Myanmar Times. This movie is from our 28 days in Myanmar (Burma) from September 28, 2012 to October 26, 2012 and our year TRIP in South East Asia, see all the videos from our trip.
