Got my visa for Myanmar yesterday and now all systems are truly GO. I leave next Wednesday evening for Yangon, spend one night, and then slowly make my way up to Sagaing Division with old friend, world-class ornithologist, and technical advisor of WCS-Myamar Program, Rob Tizzard. Was pleased to see that the Myanmar consulate is now issuing nice, neat, computer-generated visas. 

The last time I got a Myanmar visa, in May of 2009, everything was written by hand. There weren't a lot of people that needed visas in those days. I must say, the handwritten, multiply-stamped and signed, old Myanmar visa certainly makes a wonderful passport page.
