Yangon, Myanmar

Breakfast was interesting with lots of fruit, toast, fried eggs and 3 different rice concoctions with coconut and sesame!

We're on our way to Yangon which means "end of strife".  After the British victory in 1852, they changed its name to Rangoon but the Burmese know it as Yangon.

Along the way-

Highway workers-  heating the tar-

and workers - I love the hats!  Everything is done manually!  They work hard!

It's harvest time.  Here's rice drying along the road-

Lunch was sweet and sour eel!  It was delicious!

Typical transportation, baby and all!

We spent the evening at the 50th Street Bar and Grill, watching rugby and playing pool!  I had the best burger ever!  Finally!  

Here's Jill, Matt and Brenda-

Pool shark Adam!

Tomorrow it's the Shwedagon Paya!  Buddhist's Mecca!
