Burma, Mae Sot, Mawlamyine

A very wet road trip

Border-X-ing @ Mae Sot

In general, Myanmar is calm. People are super friendly and extremely helpful.

And yet…I am writing this at a guesthouse in Hpa-An. Suddenly I hear a thud in the distance, sounds like a detonation. My seat shudders for a second. What was that?! A young girl comes and turns on the TV.

… …

Two weeks ago I entered the country overland. It was a piece of cake, really. Took a bus from Sihanoukville to Bangkok. Stayed there for Songkran festival and left as soon as I could. Songkran being Songkran, we got completely soaked as we went through the villages. Here are some impressions.

Many buckets were not thrown on us but right onto our luggage. Funny, yes, in a limited sense. Once you dont give a shit anymore you dance along…
