Oh, yeah and there's boxing. The bouts are either Muay Thai, or traditional boxing (the ones wearing gloves and with technique) or Burmese vs. Thai (no gloves and not much refinement among the Burmese fighters)
There's a small percussion section on the sidelines that plays to the action. In Burmese, the big drum's called the Bohng, small drums are called Ohzi, and I forget what the tuned gongs are called. I'll find that one out later.
Here's some photos of local junk food, some huge rocks (metalsmiths email me, we'll talk), a boxing video (you might need Quicktime to watch), some music (cd from a street musician from Chiang Mai, not my recording), and absolutely no griping about human rights.
By the way, if anyone wants to be emailed when I update this thing, let me know and I will.
