It has been an historic week in Myanmar, where THE ROAD TO RANGOON is set. The first free, fair and transparent elections in decades have taken place and Aung San Suu Kyi’s party, the National League for Democracy, have won a landslide victory. It’s a remarkable achievement given the government’s long history of dictatorship and brutality, and the fact that Suu Kyi herself spent 15 years under house arrest for opposing them.
Well done voters for being brave. Here’s to hoping it stays as good as it seems.
