the story

Vagabonding is a round-the- world travelogue created by Mike Pugh, an optimist from Chicago. Mike traveled on his own through Asia and East Africa and updated this site from the road.

The trip is over, but the site remains. All the travelogue, video, and photo entries are in their archives.

A Burmese Monk Speaks Out Against the Government

Myanmar's government is a mess, yet nobody's talking about it. Except this renegade monk who speaks candidly about the government, recent history, and the need for change. NOTE: I diffused the subject's face here to protect his identity.

To hear about such a tragic situation but said with a quiet and peaceful voice is somewhat moving ! Frustrating, we can't do a thing to help them, except like you did, continue to denounce or at least inform people.
Thanks !
