Where the flying fishes play…

A message for the lads on the international desk in Waymouth Street.

A couple of decades ago the powers-that-be in Mandalay decided to change the country’s name from Burma to Myanmar.

It was a time of turmoil all round, with an overnight about-face  of traffic flow and an overnight recall and fiscal turmoil with the renumbering of the monetary system. All a result, I am assured, of the intervention of the royal family’s soothsayer!!!

As a lone traveller I remember it well.
