New York, NY (April 30, 2012) - Frederick Selby's presentation will describe the principle Buddhist and other important sites of Myanmar and Laos, after receiving permission to trek north from Putao in Kachin Province (northeastern Myanmar). Selby, along with eight other individuals, hiked through thick tropical foliage and over hills to reach a beautiful and seldom dwelled isolated village occupied by the Lisu people. Selby will also discuss Myanmar and Laos’ recent changes - the countries' histories and their future, post formal diplomatic relations during U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's visit in December, 2011.
