There are indeed expats in Rangoon. Apart from the usual diplomatic and embassy crowd, there are businessmen and technician types. You will find far more Asian expats, especialy Chinese, than Western. I ran into two Frenchman flying for Myanmar Air and another working in the furniture industry. The nightclub at the Equatorial hotel is a favorite hang out of the expat crowd, as is the Sky Pub/Cafe at the Kandawgyi Palace Hotel on weekend evenings. My impression is that expat life is very lively. By the way, I am very, very jealous of you. Burma is fantastic. I am a professional expat working the Middle East circuit and would give my left arm to find something in Burma. Alas, i am only a frequent visitor.
