This blog will chronicle my time spent in Myanmar as a Gender Advisor with Cuso International. I will be working with a local NGO in the city of Mawlamyine to support their work empowering women and girls to be community leaders.

I hope to blog weekly on my experiences of living in Myanmar. I expect there to be lots of photos and tales of the beauty I find during my time, focused around the food and culture of the country.
