139. Myanmar--Excuse me, Burma Monks in Protest

I'm posting this just because I can. I heard about this on NPR--monks protesting in Myanmar (Burma) about the repressive government, protests triggered by a raise in fuel prices.

I think it's a protest against an insensitive government that ignores the poverty of its people. And to my mind, it's beautiful.

EDIT: The name of the country is explained at Middle Road. And there's more info here .
