Program addressing Myanmar

MARQUETTE – Traveler Sharon Rice will present a Northern Center for Lifelong Learning program titled “Land of Golden Temples and Floating Gardens,” at 7 p.m. Jan. 20 in room 101-B of the Superior Dome in Marquette.

A century ago, Rudyard Kipling described Burma as a place “quite unlike any land you know about.”

After a long period of isolation, the country-also known as Myanmar – has started to encourage tourism.

The cost is free for NCLL members and $5 for non-members. Register by Tuesday by calling 227-2979.
