Mrs. Suu Kyi will have a frenetic schedule in the U.S., combining high-level meetings with award ceremonies and get-togethers with Burmese expatriates and activists who long campaigned for her release.
On Wednesday, when she is presented with the congressional award, Mrs. Suu Kyi will meet with House and Senate leaders. The White House has yet to announce whether she will meet with President Obama.
After Washington, she travels later in the week to New York, where she worked from 1969 to 1971 at the United Nations. Mrs. Suu Kyi then will go to Kentucky to address the University of Louisville, before traveling to meet with one of America’s largest Burmese communities in Fort Wayne, Ind. She will also visit San Francisco and Los Angeles.
