AUNG SAN SUU KYI
When I tell people I just returned from Myanmar, some say, "Where?" Yet most people have heard of Aung San Suu Kyi, the president elect that was put on house arrest by the military junta of Myanmar and kept her from collecting her Nobel Prize for Peace - at least until last year. Myanmar is now opening up, the miliary is loosening its grip, and people all over the country are treating Aung San Suu Kyi as a hero. Photos of her are everywhere, as well those of her father Bogyoke Aung San who liberated the country from British rule.
