I have been working on rural household surveys in Myanmar since August 2000. Myanmar is indeed a South-East Asian country. I especially like its food and cats. Please visit other pages below, which show photos from rural Myanmar.

I visited Chin State, near Indian border in September 2002. As this is a very hilly area, it was already quite chilly when we visited one farmer's house. A cat and a dog were enjoying the heat from a hearth.

Cats are found everywhere. This cat watches mouse for a large farmer who has a huge paddy storage in a rice growing village in Lower Myanmar. She plays an important role for her master.
