Burmese images and voices


Sad photos of the post-cyclone devastation in Myanmar, (warning: including dead children), are on this Burmese blog  (my browser doesn’t even display the fonts, have no idea what it’s called) which I found thanks to Ivan Sigal’s thoughtful Burning Bridge Blog. Also fascinating that the author ends the series with a cartoon which I was able to identify as  Singapore cartoonist Heng Kim Song (translation or publication info welcome). Meanwhile, Global Voices provides fascinating insight into what Burmese themselves are saying about the slow arrival of relief for the survivors. One blog says an anonymous government official believes the death toll might be as high as 600,00. Another hopes the government will find a way to accept foreign aid so as not to lose the trust of the people.
