Yangon, Myanmar (CNN) -- Myanmar political activist Aung San Suu Kyi and her younger son got an early start Wednesday, visiting a pagoda, attending a memorial for her uncle and meeting with political supporters.
Starting about 7 a.m., she and her son Kim Aris visited the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon and attended a service for her uncle. Later in the day, Suu Kyi was to meet with young women who belong to her political party, the National League for Democracy.
Everywhere Suu Kyi goes, she's shadowed by plainclothes police and a security detail from her political party.
Aris arrived Tuesday in Yangon to visit his mother, from whom he'd been separated for a decade.
Suu Kyi was released from house arrest on November 13, after spending most of the past 20 years under house arrest or in prison.
It's unclear how much freedom Myanmar's secretive ruling military junta is allowing her with this release.
Suu Kyi has repeatedly challenged the military regime over the years. For her efforts, she won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991. But she also was cut off from her family, with her husband dying abroad and her two sons growing up without her. Aris last saw his mother in 2000, when he spent about two weeks with her, according to one of her attorneys.
Earlier this month, Myanmar's military regime freed her days after holding the country's first elections in two decades. The junta's party declared a landslide victory, but critics worldwide dismissed the voting as a sham.
Suu Kyi and the National League for Democracy party boycotted the November 7 elections, faulting the military junta. The regime had enacted a law that forced the NLD to choose between honoring Suu Kyi as its leader and risking the party being declared illegal, or ejecting Suu Kyi from the party and contesting the elections.
The NLD won a landslide election victory in 1990, but the military junta rejected the results. This year, the generals refused to allow international monitors to oversee its elections and overhauled Myanmar's constitution in a way critics say is aimed at tightening the regime's grip.
The constitution now requires more than 100 military nominees in parliament. Myanmar, also known as Burma, has been under military rule since 1962.
