In 1997 I lived in the border area between Thailand and Burma for almost a year with members of the All Burma Students Democratic Front (ABSDF ), teaching English and volunteering in exchange for room & board so I could help/participate in their fight for democracy.

15 years on and change may be afoot in Burma and my friends may eventually be able to go home.

I am so elated to hear about the ceasefire between the Karen National Union (KNU) and the junta, the release of hundreds of political prisoners and the NLD participating in the April 2012 elections.

Below are a few of the photos I took during my stay.
