Holding George Orwell's Burmese Days at the colonial officer's club in Katha, Burma 2004. After graduating from Eton Orwell sailed to British India where he chose to become an Imperial Police Officer from 1923-1928.
When he returned to Europe he wrote Down and Out in Paris and London, broke and with his health shattered. There were monks squatting inside the main room, the tennis court was gone but the flagpole
was still there with the British coat-of-arms weathered and faded. Behind Trapp is the Allywaddy River. It was here where Orwell drank his gin fizzes and began his writing career.
