I came across this article on Mae Sot. I was there only a couple of weeks ago. Even though I didn’t go to Burma, the police checked my passport going in and out of the town. Near where I was staying, there was what looked like a detention center for Burmese refugees. It was depressing to see, but the people seemed to be treated reasonably well, even if they were locked up. I felt sorry for them, but then I remembered Australia has a similar policy of holding refugees in similar detention centers.
