To Ms. Ngoc Anh Do

Dear Ms Anh,

I am writing to thank you for your generous and rapid response when you learned that the Zat Pwe performed would not take place during our stay in Bagan. And for arranging so quickly for a wonderful evening of dinner and puppetry this evening. We has a wonderful time. In fact the puppetry was even better than what we had seen in Mandalay.

We appreciate your care and consideration in arranging every step of our trip in Myanmar. And we look forward to working with you on our future trips to other countries of Southeast Asia. And we will be sure to recommend you to all our friends and associates because of your professionalism and attention to detail.
It has been a pleasure to work with you.

Warm regards,
Maitreya Padukone
