The goal for our RTW trip is to keep spending to under $100 USD/day. We assumed Myanmar would be fairly cheap with it being SE Asia and still fairly untraveled as a whole.

It was not lost on me that anyone I met in Rwanda from about the age of 20 onwards had experienced and survived one of the most unspeakably dark events of the 20th century.
