However differences we have noticed throughout the globe in terms of driving logic, here, in Myanmar, we remained quite puzzled.
A brief overview of the situation reveals that everything here in Myanmar (Burma) is either Royal or “Shwe”. The first one is understandable as there have been countless kingdoms…
For your greatest joy, my dear reader, we reached the next and final point of our notorious Myanmar adventure. If there is still someone who has not understood yet, please call – 0888 … 🙂
Bagan! The most emblematic place of Burma, a well-known place, a place to remember.
Travel notes N6. Forgotten by bus, hosted by someone, sent by our travel god. The Burmese cloning of famous Bulgarian singer from the near past (Vasko Ketsa)
After the experience in the train-old man and charged with considerable dose of adrenaline, we arrived at Pyin Oo Lwin, our stopover to the way to Inle Lake. There, we had to transfer from the train – “Shinkansen” to midnight bus, which tickets we had bought quite diligently and deliberately two days earlier.
After the trekking around Hsipaw, where we felt like living 100 years ago, the adventure with the time machine continued. The country is still Burma or Myanmar as it is better known for the last 30-40 years. The route – Hsipaw – Pyin Oo Lwin. By train.
Please, open google MAPS and enter Hsipaw. Now enter Pankam. Probably you will not find it, but we were right there. And round…
The outside temperature is 42 degrees Celsius. It feels like 47 according to Accuweather, but this is not true! It feels no more than 45 degrees. Under the sun or in the shade – it does not matter. In fact it matters – when under the sun, your shadow desperately strives to hide under you.
Well, the adventure begun!
With a great portion of sleep, we – the early birds. Twelve hours our bodies were crying for sleep. And immediately we jumped right into the crowd.
Short travel notes. Without vodka. With a touch of tiredness 🙂
After three flights later and a day and a half of airplane day-to-day-life, we finally arrived in Yangon. This is the biggest city of Burma, capital from the recent past, the place which we chose for starting and ending point of our adventure.
