Day 2 Yangon


storm 29 °C
View Indo 2016 until the money is gone on Richard Indo's travel map.

Well after a wet night the rain and storms have continued for most of the day but still got the chance to do some sight seeing,my accommodation organised a local taxi for day to drive me around for $50 compared to an organised tour who wanted to charge me $150 and I reckon I got to see more as there was only me and not a group to slow everything down but on the downside the driver could only speak about 2 words of English but not to worry just lots of sign language between both of us and pointing at the map !!

Mainly visited lots of Buddhist Padgodas all with intricate wood carving and decorated in gold,saw more gold to day than I have ever seen before also visited the National Musem which was okay but it was really raining then so it was a good choice to hide !! The Declining Buddha was pretty cool
Along with people's park with the view upto the Padgoda ,well once again it has come time to venture out and find some tea of all things there is wood fired pizza just around the corner which will suit me fine after a few cheap Myanmar Lagers

O my they look like some absolutely amazing places mate, bit of a shame it's raining for you. Long as the beers cold an the foods good. Have you met up with any Aussie,s yet. How long are you there for.

yeah the language barrier is a pain in that part of the world & the downside of doin it on the cheap (no English speaking guide), we used Uber alot in Vietnam for the bigger drives & was a way better deal than cabs
