and my American readers, this is a opportunity to learn about Myanmar aka Burma.
read Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myanmar , see map, see its people, street photos, girls, and ye linguistically inclined, its language and design of writing system
there is also Sino-Burmese War (1765–69). but lol, the English version of Wikipedia is entirely diff in nature from Chinese version.
