Suu Kyi's Europe trip revives lifetime of memories

Suu Kyi's Europe trip revives lifetime of memories

Paris brought back memories of onion soup. Oxford, of carefree student days and sharing a passion for literature with her two young sons. In London, Aung San Suu Kyi recalled her father, whose historic visit in 1947 came shortly before he was assassinated. She was only 2 at the time.
The Myanmar opposition leader's first trip to Europe in 24 years triggered an outpouring of nostalgia that put a softer, more personable face on the woman known for her steely defiance. She returns to Myanmar on Saturday, leaving behind a sprinkling of personal stories and recollections from her triumphant two-week tour.
