First pictures from Day 2

Mary visiting the 2,500 year old Buddhist temple, Shwedagon Pagoda, in Yangon.

I see it's LIW Tanja who is with her. Beautiful pictures and place.

Day 1, article with pictures and some more information from yesterday
Kronprinsesse Mary: Gode grin af sex - HER&NU

Mary landed in Myanmar early Friday morning after a stopover in Bangkok Airport during the night.
Naturally and straightforward Mary asked about the young people's sexual habits:
- "Is it the girls who must take responsibility for contraception in a sexual relationship?"
- "Have the young people access to contraception at all?"
The straightforward question sparked some giggling among the young people, who aren't used to talk free about that topic. Mary told the youth about her experiences from trips to Africa, where there are many myths about that use of condoms can make young men infertile. That myth could the youth people recognize very well and together they got themselves some good laughs in spite of the very serious topic.
Mary: "There has to be options so both boys and girls can protect themselves. You need knowledge to make the right decisions."

Thanks Roskilde and Polyesco.

I see PET are close during the visit to the pagoda. Perhaps someone with knowledge of Buddism can explain to us what we are seeing?

Thank Polyesco!

After her visit to the temple in the morning, Mary has according to the program been to meetings the rest of the day, so I actually didn't expect more pictures from today. So I guess the last pictures may be from an unofficial visit? It isn't listed in the program.

But can see Billedbladet writes about the private visit as well:
VIDEO: Kronprinsesse Mary fløj til det nordlige Myanmar | Billed Bladet

They write that after Mary had visited the temple she and the Danish delegation (and Billedbladet and the others journalists) together flew to the northern Myanmar. There the Danish Refugee Council works (which Mary is patron of) with protection of internally displaced persons and especially women and children. Soon after they all had arrived to a modest hotel Mary and Minister Rasmus Helveg went off to have a look at the harsh conditions in and around Sittwe. I guess it's from there the last pictures from today are from.

Billed Bladet's photographer in Myanmar has send a picture home and posted it on their Facebook page:

We just want to share a lovely picture with you of our capable Crown Princess Mary which our photographer Jesper Sunesen has taken today during the visit to Myanmar
https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=1&theater

And last, Mary was covered in tonigts news again today.

The BT gallery has been updated with pics of Mary in the refugee camp.
Se billederne: Her trøster Mary en lille dreng i flytningelejr | www.bt.dk

Here comforting a boy who told her about his parents.
The camp also has a kindergarten, and Mary brought along some teddy bears and games for the children.

I noticed quite a number of people in the pictures have something on their faces. First I thought It might some kind of sunscreen but that doesn't seem to be the case. Does anyone know if this is some local costum?

#11, Mary is here chatting with a local man who has been given a small grant to open a little store.

#12, and a local woman who has also recieved at grant to open a little shop.

Touching pictures.

Yes Muhler, I have wondered about what it is they have in their faces too? I have noticed it all three days. A culture thing?

One more gallery with large pictures
Med Mary og ministeren i Myanmar | www.b.dk

Tonight's first evening news has just been shown on TV and Mary's visit in the two camps were good covered.

Mary: "I met a woman. 23 year old. And she has nine children to look after. That's a lot. She has no other source of income than a little shop here in the camp and the emergency relief isn't enough when you have so many children."

Yes it's a Burmese costum (and also one of the most sold souvenirs for tourists ). It's called Thanaka. Thanaka - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Thanks, Ricarda

I knew someone could inform us.

Both Mary and Frederik were well featured tonight on TV2 news at 19.00.

Mary about her trip to the refugee camp. The plight of the refugees is not made easier by the fact that the Myanmar government do not recognice them as refugees but as illegal immigrants.

Frederik was in the town of Herning tonight to attend the first handball match. I must confess I don't follow handball much, so I'll leave it to those who are interested to provide background info. (*)
But Frederik said that the family will when they are all together again later this week follow the matches on TV as far as possible. That includes Christian who seems to be bitten by a sports-bug.

(*) I've never understood the deeper purpose of handball. A group of people grab a ball run a short distance to the opponents goal. Toss the ball around a few times before they score. Then the opponents get the ball and the whole thing repeat itself in the other end.
Why not take turns throwing the ball against the opponents goal for 2x30 minutes? I mean, where's the tactic? Where's the play? Where are the subleties? Surely you'll agree that this cannot be compared to the noble game of football.

New article from B.T.
Ulykkelig dreng til kronprinsesse Mary: Min mor er død - Royale | www.bt.dk

Centered on the the little crying boy, Jamal Huson, who Mary comforted. He told her that he has lost both his mother and father. The mother died when their house burned down and his father was shot. It's some hard fates these children can tell about!

B.T's photographer in Myanmar tells: "As he tells his story, he begins to cry. You could see the Crown Princess was very concerned. It was definitely one of the most touching moments of the trip."

Thanks Roskilde.

And this is the clip from TV2 showing the boy telling Mary his story: Det fortæller grædende dreng til Mary | Nyhederne.tv2.dk

In case you wish to know ladies, the news anchor is Michael Kamper, who in DK is somewhat of a we-sure-would-like-him-as-our son-in-law.

Is the boy living in a camp or does the story say? So very sad, and think how many have similar stories.

As Muhler already have mentioned the trip was very well covered in our news again tonight on both DR1 and TV2. The day's biggest news broadcasts (always at 7pm) both had several minutes long and informative clips. Both Mary and our Minister for Development were interviewed.

All in all, this trip has got a impressive coverage!

The clip from DR1
Danmark klar med millioner til flygtninge i Burma | Nyheder | DR

And the clip from TV2
Grædende dreng til Mary: Min mor er brændt inde | Nyhederne.tv2.dk

In the interview Mary says: "I'm very thankful I can be here today and help to create awareness to the humanitarian catastrophe taking place simultaneously with the rapid growth. I hope we can create discussion at both the highest and lowest level so those two ends meet. So these people can return to their homes. This is their biggest wish: To come home."


**

Because of the time difference (Myanmar is 6 hours ahead of Danish time) I guess Mary within relatively few hours will be back home in Denmark.
