Sea Lion Lady, that is just what I was thinking. Shirley, why not wait until you are completely healed from your surgery to travel to Burma? Whatever kind of surgery you have had, the temple steps, uneven walkways, squat toilets, rail-less stairs, etc. might be a challenge for you. And the heat and humidity are both so high in that area......that alone makes Burma a somewhat difficult destination. You would enjoy your trip much more if you were in good shape for it, and run less risk of injury, too.
