The situation perhaps is somewhat similar to what was in Lithuania and the rest of Eastern Europe some 20 years ago. Similarities do not end here - Lithuania at some point claimed to be a bridge between Russia and the Western Europe, Myanmar can claim to be the bridge between India and China ;)
Even the flag of Myanmar is new as of 2010. Would this not be a reason to visit Myanmar sporting our Lithuanian flag (which probably would get you some friends)? Pretty cool, huh?
