Trip to Myanmar Burma

Made it to the airport. And off we go to my mind in Asia Ronald McDonald boughs cleanser, it’s now 6:30.

And, we’re getting ready to get onto our plane. So, it’s about a 45-minute flight to my environment ever need to use the bathroom because if you do better get ready to pop a squat all right how much should. I take out 100,000 mmk or two when, I’m good oh so.

I just took out $150,000 or basically the equivalent of 150 dollars u.s..

I don’t know how, I’m gonna fit this all in my wallet okay some pretty much looks like monopoly money almost as the same value too. And this is what you see right outside of the airport terminal just a beautiful landscape of dirt garbage. And concrete, it’s beautiful.

So you see here three little kids collecting copper wire. And making a couple extra bucks right outside of the airport welcome to Burma, we’ve arrived somewhere who knows what we drive that this country is the buildings are falling apart there’s mold growing on everything yes nice touches it with his hands that’s great Health Canada would be a fault, it’s definitely a totally different country than Thailand here, it’s way behind for 50 cents. I got this cut up pineapple all the women here have this weird gold dust but on their face, I’m not sure what it is but.

So for 8,000 or you / thousand. So pretty much eight box you can get this nice skirt. And this advertisement really sold me think, I’m going to get it just finishing up doing some grocery shopping here.

So, we’re good to go for our week trip got some mosquito repellent. So we don’t get malaria got some sunblock. And peanuts few snacks all the snacks.

And I had like ten of these ladies just staring. And laughing at me they’re all giggling because clearly they just don’t get many foreigners through this country firm is actually like one of the most untwist the areas in the world, it’s very difficult to get a visa. And just kind of remote there’s not a whole lot of tourism set up.

So it would be a really cool experience not many people can say they’ve done this downtown yangon the hot spot my admirers the country that is to the northwest of Thailand not nearly as developed as the rest of Southeast Asia there’s just so much garbage everywhere, we’ve seen. So many people just throwing litter on the side of the road garbage on garbage on garbage, it’s just.

And, we’re looking fly as hell yeah these are definitely the friendlies people. I’ve ever met this thing is called shwedagon pagoda shweta gan Pedego de really hard to say but, it’s over 2,000 years old. And at the very top of it they have a 22 inch height diamond and.

So when, it’s sunset the Sun hits the diamond you can see a big rainbow at the top right now, it’s under construction unfortunately but still looks amazing every four years they replace the gold on it. And yeah just an unbelievably beautiful sight here. And there’s almost no tourists here, it’s all the locals.

And right now. I guess sacrificing to Buddha, I’m I’m not gonna guess with the dune but okay there’s. So many buddhas disney world needs to step up its game ha yeah yeah they made a previously important Buddha land yeah.

So everyone’s laughing at us because we bought women’s pants. And we didn’t know it we just saw they’re really cool, it’s a little bit business affairs cover, I’m laughing too they don’t anyway look, we’re bringing it, we’re bringing the trend in you know oh my gosh the detail is impeccable. I would think these are gonna be cool yeah if, it’s not lucky you’re gonna go back home.

So this is what, I’m having for dinner simply pretty different than when, I’m used to, I’m sitting next to a busy road on a unstable table with a tiny little plastic chair. And, we’re gonna be drinking out of a mug that looks like was never clean but that’s just how it goes here add some green tea. And my noodles.

And all this was 500 M K which is the equivalent of 50 cents just luxury living back here yawns having a hard time fitting in this chair but things are good by far the most dangerous driving. I’ve ever seen can’t go three seconds living how to pass each other a lot of the transport trucks that people hanging outside. I would like to shoot feet away from us three Russia this is what.

I was afraid of. So we are now leaving Yangon. And heading to Bagon.

And bagan. I was back on. And for $11 we get our own little reclining seat here.

So, we’re going to sleep overnight that way we don’t need to stay anywhere. And we luckily got two seats each. And just living that VIP lifestyle.

So, we’re like three hours into the drive would have hoped to be more. I just woke up this place is by far the dirtiest place. I’ve ever been.

I’ve been to rural Mexico. And it was way cleaner than here everything you touch here is just like disgusting like, it’s never been clean before no one has any care for it. And all the men here chew this weird tobacco type thing, it’s wrapped in a leaf.

And it kind of looks like bird poop. And they always their teeth are all red their lips are over it looks like they’re bleeding from the mouth. And they’re all constantly spitting everywhere they’re spinning.

And garbages they’re spitting on the RO they’re spitting near the food vendors, it’s been something else that’s for sure this is only day one. And, we’re in Yangon, we’ve now left hand gone but, we’re we’re heading out into the more countryside area. So hopefully the less dust dense population will make it a bit cleaner but for now, it’s been a bit of a hole the only thing beautiful has been the actual kindness of the people but that’s not really doing it for me right now.
