That's me at my birth sign scooping water over the image, elephant with tusks as I was born on a Wednesday in the morning. Had it been in the afternoon? Elephant w/out tusks.
The afternoon was so hot and unbearable that I took a short rest at my hotel to cool off.
Visited Sule Pagoda, 2,000 years old and located in a busy intersection. A mix of the past and present.
That evening I had pasta, only my second western meal in over a week. One should always stick with the local cuisine. The seafood pasta was fine, but I enjoyed my glass of wine more.
Bogyoke Market was closed and I was so disappointed. It has hundreds of stalls of clothes, food, handicrafts, jewelry...and was I going to miss this? Not on your life. My pick-up for my transfer to the airport was at 12pm so off I went via taxi in the morning for a quick stop on my own. I swear the taxi on my return to my hotel was either going to lose all its wheels and/or the exhaust was going to kill me. Luckily I'm here today to tell you all about it.
Then off I was to Bangkok. Arrived at 4pm and left the following morning at 7:30am. Since I was there for so little time with an EARLY wake up call, I stayed a the Novotel at the airport. Very convenient.
Time flies when you're having fun and time certainly flew. Much too quickly.
...so where to next????
