The Myanmarican Part 1 The Dream by Jon Gyi

In part one of this three-part series about my time in Myanmar, my overriding intention is to show the world a glimpse of the country that I fell in love with, and to show that people are the same everywhere, despite differences in religion and culture, and despite what the media sometimes portrays.
It discusses my journey from American engineer to Myanmar advertising CEO, and, eventually, my emergence as a top-selling Myanmar singer songwriter. I've titled this part the dream, for it recounts much happiness: my joy at finding a woman I believed was my soulmate, our many achievements in the business world, my foray into the music industry, and my newfound love of a country, its culture, and its people.
