-arrived at 4 am again, not very convenient
-sat outside on the steps of our new hotel, fighting mozzies until someone let us in
-sat around the lobby waiting to check into our room
-so out of it that we slept for 3 hours after we checked in but woke up to shaking...EARTHQUAKE!
-we had no idea where we were (what country, city, where our shoes were, et)
-we pretty much were the last people out of the building, by then the shake subsided and I noticed the huge power grid just next to our building...hmm, not exactly safe to be standing next to it
-walked around palace and up Mandalay Hill, saw a bunch of pagodas and had good daikon soup
-GM got back
-rented bikes to Amarapura, U Bein Bridge teak wood, villages, friendly country folk, theme park-ish pagodas/Buddhas, Maha Muni Buddha
-peddled our hearts out to make it back and catch our bus to Inle
