Burma could be coming in from the cold. Ang Sang Su Kui was released on 13th November 2010. Previously she was held under house arrest for 14 of the last 20 years. This is a positive step for democracy in the country. Wonderful to hear some good news from Myanmar!
Other good news is that more and more divers are returning with enthusiastic reports from their Burma diving trips. The diving season has begun well with mostly sunny days, 33°C temperatures and light winds. The dive sites are not overcrowded and still as pristine as ever. Divers are raving about healthy coral, 1m fans in many colours and creature sightings including leopard sharks and manta rays.
