On Friday evening, we headed to an art gallery featuring some great photographs of Karen freedom fighters, in the mountains of southeast Burma. We met some great people, including some fellow Burmese, and Nyan Thomas made friends with, well, just about everyone, including Luke, who is about 8 years old and was totally enamored with the little man. His mom told us later that as she was putting down to bed that night, “he expressed the desire to have a little brother like [Nyan]. He was really taken by his sweetness. Good job, mama and papa!” Aww, thanks! We try our best.
