Burma shuns foreign aid workers. (BBC)
In addition to the print story at the BBC site, there is a bit of amateur video in which you can see some of the material damage and, thanks be to Godde, living people. There are also documents offering background information and details on the catastrophe.
The BBC still calls Myanmar "Burma." An anti-dictatorship statement perhaps? (Or just keeping the language of the British Empire?)
Hard to take into one's mind and heart the thousands of deaths and all the displacement and devastation.
Caminante has been posting on Burma regularly since the cyclone hit.
