No sleep till Mandalay
Sometimes adventure travelling can be a real grind - always on the move, weird and different modes of travelling, strange faces and odd scenarios. Just took a gruelling night bus for 8 hours from Yangon north to Mandalay. Little sleep, constantly stopping, bumpy roads. And there was a fight at the bus station, some poor bloke covered in claret after taking a beating. Still, I’ve arrived safely into my hotel and the people are warm and friendly. One night only here before I move on to Bagan for four nights and to see in the New Year.
