Myanmar, Cambodia and Laos

Myanmar, Cambodia and Laos

February 2018

Myanmar has a long history that dates back to 300 BCE during the Mon Kingdom. The British invaded the country in the 1820’s and after a series of wars and conflicts it became British territory, incorporated into India. It did not become a separate colony until 1937 and then an independent nation 10 years later. The Democratic Republic of Burma was short lived however when the military took over in a coup d’etat in 1962. Since then, sadly the economy and standard of living has dropped substantially. (Before the military coup, Burma exported more rice than any other nation on Earth!) The name Myanmar was applied to the country after the military junta declared it the official name. Previously it was called Burma and is still referred to it by this name by many in the country and around the world. The country has a population of around 48 million people, most of whom practice Buddhism.

Uganda and Rwanda

Uganda and Rwanda

March 2018

Uganda is a land locked African nation about the size of Victoria. It is predominantly a Christian based country with 80% of the 30 million people being of Christian faith. With stunning scenery, much of the country is on a plateau which ascends to over 5,100 metres on Mount Stanley in the south - the 3rd highest peak in Africa. The landscape is a combination of jungle, grasslands and land that has been cleared for farming. Uganda shares Lake Victoria - the largest tropical lake in the world - as its eastern border with Kenya and Tanzania. Rwanda is also a stunningly beautiful land locked country. It borders Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi and the Congo. At less than 25,000km (less than half the size of Tasmania), it is one of the smallest nations on the African continent. It is often referred to as “the land of a thousand hills”, with a diverse terrain ranging from active volcanoes and high altitude forest to grasslands and swamplands.
