Burma has been awesome. But it's just going to get better.
About the people and their lives
What are some facts about the people?
Well, the people in the country are called the Burmese and the population is about 48,081,302, (wow that's a lot of people!). The major religion is Buddhism. Burma changed it's name to the Union of Myanmar after the United Kingdom conquered the country and Myanmar got it's independence. The currency (type of money they use) is called Kyat. The children and adults play with kites but they have to be very careful; the ropes that hold the kites are super sharp and very often, people get cut with them. Anyway soccer is also the most played and most popular sport.
