Partying With the Shan ArmyPosted: April 28, 2014
My friend Daniel Otis, a writer now living in Cambodia, spent almost a month in northeastern Myanmar in February, mostly reporting on the Shan Army. He’s written an insightful, revealing story that appeared in Vice, with various other versions for different publications. Sam Jam, a photographer, took great photographs of the trip. The days were marked with military drills and parades. At night, the rebel army’s rock and roll band took to the stage for raucous booze-fuelled concerts. To get a look at Dan’s writing, see his website Exhaust and Incense here. The Vice story is here.
