One of the most important lesson I learned during my recent trip to Burma came from an unknown old man-‘Being specific always pays‘, and I mean it in literal sense as well.
Burma is still a place somewhat stuck back in time. People have mobile phones but it is a relatively recent phenomena, and thus not many have it. I was waiting for arrival of my Burmese friend at a local ice-cream parlor. It was about 3:15 PM by my watch. For me the wait was not very pleasant, partially because the parlor had some funny smell, and partially because I had nothing to do.
