Human Rights Violations Tied Up in Legal Red Tape
Bagan, MYANMAR
Drake will agree to do just about anything, as long as there are no strings attached. While he doesn't have linonophobia (the fear of string), per se, he does get edgy when people approach him with string, fishing wire, jumping ropes, electrical cords, long strips of duct or sturdy masking tape, uncoiled spools of costume trimming, twine, those flexible plastic strips that the Hong Kong police use for handcuffs that have a ribbed track on one side so it only slides in one direction; basically anything that his brother Steve could tie him up with when they were kids. So when Drake discovered what was happening at the Myanmar National Marionette Theater in Bagan, he was fit to be tied.
