These days it gets harder and harder for someone whose face is recognizable around the world to have any privacy.
That may have been one of the reasons that veteran rocker Mick Jagger recently spent a few days' vacation in Burma.
Officials tell reporters the Rolling Stones icon was accompanied by a woman friend and a bodyguard when he arrived by private plane in Rangoon last Friday. He left on Tuesday.
A staffer at the historic Strand Hotel where Jagger is reported to have stayed says the 56-year-old rock star paid 900-dollars-a-night for the accommodations. The staffer--a young woman--told the Associated Press people of her generation do not know Mick Jagger well. But she said her uncle is a fan.
Opponents of Burma's military government support a tourism boycott of the country. That anti-tourism campaign is especially strong in Jagger's native Britain.
