Well after another hearty breakfast I had to catch a taxi to the bus station to get the VIP express bus to Pyay about 250km whichever leaving 1030 am and it did so that's a good start some 6.5 hours we arrive in Pyay!! The normal bus cost $5.50 but I paid $7.50 hate to think how long the cheaper bus takes,but the bus had A/C and was very comfortable but as was wet and stormy most of the way travelling today was okay

The view of the land was interesting once out of Yangon,the city turned to rice paddys and small towns ,pulled up about half way for a toilet/food break it was interesting to note that some villages we impeccably clean with know rubbish whilst others were the complete opposite, likewise with buildings the large majority were thatched or timber with corrugated roofs but the were quite a few new buildings like in the photo ,so somebody is making money.

All in all a easy day on the bus listening to its air horns which were blown constantly to warn motor scooters/pedestrians/animals just about anything it caught upto got a blast to get out the way,seriously I reckon out of the 6.5 hours we we on the road the horn was going for 2 of them
