As a Myanmar domestic traveller into Yangon International you are treated to very little aircon, plastic seats, squat toilets and a dusty parking lot. But walk out the front gate after your domestic flight, turn right past the gilded VIP (government) terminal and into the wifi enabled shiny glass International Terminal and you instantly walk from 3rd world Burma back into 1st world South East Asia. Bliss, relief, sanctuary or come down? It's certainly the only place outside of The Strand Hotel that felt "modern" in all our travels around the country.

... is so much to talk about!
Now I am not really sure where to start or what to include in this entry… I could write about my new love affair of Aung San Suu Kyi or we could get into a discussion about the famous Mustache Brothers and their freedom fighting crusade.

... On the first day of sticking to a budget!!! Must try harder! Anyway it was very nice and very civilised and by the time we had finished our drink in the bar, it had stopped raining, well Luke had to complete the Sling triple, he had now had an E&O Sling, a Singapore Sling and now a Strand Sling. Very nice too.
After that it was a quick wind up of the walking tour a disastrous decision to go to the Shwedagon Pagoda for sunset, which we missed whilst looking for a ...
... ranking high!
Next day in Yangon we booked our ticket for the night bus to Bagan that very night. The hotel was more than happy to keep our bags for the day so we started walking around and sightseeing. This got interrupted many times with the rain but it turned out not to be so bad as we used every shower as an excuse to drink a tea in the abundant and ubiquitous tea houses around the city.
Yangon is way better than I thought. I was ...
... colonial architecture, and street lights no where to be found. Walking down one of the larger streets with only a faint orange glow to show the way, we avoided potholes, stray dogs, and many other obstacles. We arrived on the eve of the World Cup and I had to find a place to watch it (even with the game starting at 2 am). I found a western bar that was hosting the Brazilian Embassy and after getting a ...
