The coolest life
I was sitting at the Myanmar border gate talking to some Burmese army officers about publicizing a meeting for tomorrow. The meeting is about Operation Smile, an NGO that provides free facial surgery to the poor (http://www.operationsmile.org/programs/patients/international/) ...really a great program. The officer introduces me to his commanding officer, who is a little drunk but friendly. They agree to send a truck around the village with a loud speaker on top to tell everyone about the meeting. As I was sitting there, some beautiful Buddist nuns walked by with their shaven heads and their beautiful pink robes and I thought I have the most interesting life.
