Well here I am at Kin Pun Sakhan, Foot of Mt. Kyaikhtiyo, Myanmar to visit the Golden Rock which apparently the 3rd most important Buddhist site in Burma and in the dry season the views would be terrific, but today I got to see some of the thickest fog I have ever encountered,middle of the day and at times visibility was more than 10 metres, the mountain is around 1100 metres so might of been cloud ?? but was still worth visiting

To get to the mountains you get on the back of truck with about 35 other souls and are jammed in like sardines and once nobody else can fit the take off for the summit and see if they can beat there best time to get to the top,was a bit hair raising to be honest !!

Still was nice to be in the mountains,nice and cool coupled with extreme fog and have down pours,but it is the height of the monsoon season so not many tourists which is good

Spent yesterday travelling for Bago and then organising site seeing, and my next destination which should be my last in Myanmar before crossing into Thailand,so have a leisurely breakfast tomorrow before the 4 hour bus trip to
Hpa An, Myanmar, only plan too spend a couple nights there and as tomorrow is a travel day,I once again get the day off blogging and boring everybody or making you envious??
