After leaving there I found the British Council next door. Its got loads of recent news papers there and it has the BBC world new playing on a tv, I think il go there now to take it easy and watch some of the election news. From what I've heard so far it sounds pretty interesting.
The money here is funny, its like old pirate money. The exchnage rate is around 1000 kyat to the dollar depending on where I exchange money. The official government exchange rate is 60 ky to the dollar, which would have made my meal last night over $100. I think they like to over value themselves. Because of the government rate people are advised to exchange money on the 'black markety', by that it just means from shops and hotels. but i do feel super cool saying that I'm getting my money from the Black market, hehe.
I'll be leaving Yangon early tomorrow morning so we'll see how good the internet is outside the capital.
Until next time xxxxxxx
