My impressions have dimmed over the last few months home, but I remember the Panda Hotel as being adequate. The location was out of the way but at least it was close to the National Museum and some good restaurants and a supermarket. The room was fine and the breakfast buffet had lots of choices - it was better to order your eggs if you wanted any, otherwise you end up with cold eggs. Staff were courteous and helped me when I needed to extend my stay.

We are now in Myanmar which used to be called Burma; we are staying tonight in Yangon which used to be called Rangoon. Confused? Well, Myanmar is a very confusing, but interesting country. The country was given its independence from Great Britain in 1948; while it was intended to become a democracy, the military generals took over power and created a very powerful ruling junta which also brought down the Burma economy, education, and health care system. The junta also replaced ...
... him giving one to the police man who is riding on our bus, I suspect it is a form of payoff. I spend a little time exploring further down the lane and find a group of small boys eager to engage in conversation and wanting to have their picture taken. They are sitting in the dirt with absolutely nothing to play with. Getting back on the bus I look out the window and see the local well with a young man washing his hair and body using well water and a bucket to ...
... to say we give this place a miss, but we do piggy back on the locals crossing, and even wait 5 minutes so we don’t cross on our own! Crossings don’t exist and traffic lights don’t seem to be logical or be obeyed, so it’s just safety in numbers approach!!
Walking down the road chatting to May about a monk’s life and Buddism, (which plays a massive part in the majority of people’s lives here,) with impeccable timing, some shaven headed ...
