H1 'This Is The Real Burma' is a 'must-read' The book ‘This Is The Real Burma’ is the first book of Markus Burman's 'This Is The Real Burma' series and a 'must-read' for everyone who wants to learn about the real Burma. Markus is living since about 25 years in this amazing country and there is hardly any other ‘Westerner’ who was or is living in Burma longer than he does. His unparalleled book is like Orwell’s ‘Burmese Days’ and James Scott’s ‘The Burman, His Life And Notions’ unrivalled and Markus is exited to share with you this country of golden pagodas and 1000 smiles he is privileged to call home and about which Rudyard Kipling wrote, ‘This is Burma, and it is unlike any land you know about.’ ‘This Is The Real Burma’ is richly illustrated and deals on the equivalent of some 800 physical book pages extensively and detailed with Burma and the life in it. Markus’s experiences have given him special insight to write about the mysterious and beautiful country Burma. He will take you on an exciting journey in the course of which you will learn how today’s Myanmar came to be, how the people live as Buddhist monks, nuns and lay people, their crafts and arts, what they are producing and how they do it, what they eat and drink, what they like, their believes, customs and manners, what festivals they are celebrating and how they celebrate them, their different histories and cultures, the flowers, fruits and gems of the country, many of Burma's points of interest and their history, and so on and so forth. H 1 Fascinating Burma picture gallery The picture gallery comprises a very small selection of many centuries and even millennia old Burmese pagodas, temples and monasteries as well as Buddhist monks, nuns, tribal people and many other fascinating things that make up the real Burma. In this book you will find a total of some 450 carefully selected pictures. These pictures are integral part of what I am writing, are a reflection of Burma’s cultural treasures and will give you a very realistic idea of this amazing country, its culture, people, flowers, fruits and the life in it.
