Well after another breakfast of eggs and toast!! It was time to get out of Mandalay for the day and visit Pyin U Lwin which is about 1-1/2 hours outside Mandalay up in the mountain area which is a part of the old golden triangle and also where the British went to escape the heat during colonial rule,bit like The Blue Mountain, it is about 1150 metres above sea level and the temperature was terrific a pleasant 23' compared to now in Mandalay which is 35' and sticking hot due to bloody humidity

The trip upto the hills was well worth it,lots of Mandalays fruit and vegetables are grown up there so there were lots of terraced fields ,visited a cave which was full of yep you guessed it Buddha's which was pretty neat,also visited a small waterfall and another Padgoda but the highlight would be the botanical Gardens set on 350 odd acres it was really nice

Tomorrow (Saturday) and getting a bus to Bagon and plan to spend a few days there before travelling to to Inle,so no up date tomorrow as I will be on bus
again

I have been taking quite a few photos on the Canon DSLR and when time and and I find a computer I will up load as I am typing all this on my phone hence the spelling/sentence errors ?
