Rajan yli Myanmariin

Phuketilla viihdyin niin mainiosti että kuukausi armonaikaa Thaimaassa kului taas kerran nopeasti umpeen. Kaverini ehdotti vielä reissailua sen jälkeen kun hänen työnsä loppuvat, eli minun piti lähteä visarunille Myanmariin. Visarun toimii näin; minibussi ahdetaan täyteen ulkomaalaisia, jotka...

Day 8 -- A Day On The Lake

A day on the lake. We started, as we usually do, by visiting the local market. To get there we again crossed the hyacinth-dotted lake, passing by a number of local fisherman using the traditional cone-shaped nets, which are becoming more and more rare (or so says out guide). We eventually...

Day 7 -- Inle

And we're off to Inle Lake. Joe picked us up at 6:30 for the hour or so ride to the airport. Along the way, he told us about a small Nat (spirit) festival that we had missed yesterday in lieu of the temples. I wish we had known, because I would have much preferred to see what he described,...

Day 6 -- Two Weddings and a Funeral

Two weddings and a funeral. No, you can't make this stuff up. We left the hotel earlier than normal today to attend the 8:30 a.m. wedding of his friend, the son of the owner of the puppet show. (Evidently, Jo worked at the puppet theater before becoming a guide). The wedding ceremony was...

Day 5 -- Mandalay

I like Mandalay. It has life. Maybe it's the motorbikes that are absent from Yangon, or that it isn't holding onto British Colonialism, or maybe just that Ellery and I have been venturing out on our own here, but what's ever makes it this was is good. Jo picked us up around 8:30 for the...

Day 4 -- Popa to Mandalay

Not every day can be incredible, and this was one of those days. We left the hotel around 8:30 and hit the road to Mandalay. The countryside was nice, but nothing to write home about (notwithstanding the fact that this is exactly what i am doing). But there were points of interest. The...

Day 3 -- Bagan to Popa

After checking out of our incredible hotel, today began with a visit to the Bagan market. Hundreds of bamboo stalls packed two main areas - produce on one side, meats, fish and hard goods on the other. The stalls were all, for the most part, manned by women, selling every kind of thing you can...

Day 2 -- Discovering Bagan

TinTin and our driver were waiting for us at the ungodly hour of 4:45 am as we set off for the airport. As it was with Nelson Mandela in South Africa, all neighborhoods here are defined by their relationship to Aing San Kuu Kyi - this is the street where her house is, this is where her...

Day 1 -- Yangon in a Day

From Singapore, it was another three hour flight to Yangon. By this time Ellery and I were definitely traveled out, but the time went quickly as Ellery fell fast asleep and I chatted with a very nice auditor from Singapore Arrival in Yangon was very smooth, although everything is still...

Kurzbesuch in Myanmar

Der Norden ist wirklich klasse. Gestern, auf dem Nachtmarkt, waren wir so gut wie die einzigen Farangs, Touristen sieht man hier kaum...das merkt man auch daran, dass die Leute einen freundlich begegnen, ohne einem etwas andrehen zu wollen...echte Freundlichkeit...und trotzdem, oder gerade...
