Mandalay: Rain, 104 Degree Heat and Sweaty IceBreakers (video)


WATCH: Mandalay: Rain, 104 Degree Heat and Sweaty IceBreakers in Myanmar (Burma)

40degrees Celsius (104 F) in the shade!

We went to see Mandalay Hill Pagoda with so many steps and names for the top. We went to the top and then the summit and we were hot and sweaty!
I never sweat through my shirt before especially not an IceBreaker. We saw a sign that said 40degrees C which was 104degrees F. Maybe we could have taken transport? Later we went to Rainbow restaurant for beer and great snacks. And then there was a deluge of rain and instant flooding in the streets. What a day of weather contrasts!  October 2, 2012

This movie is from our 28 days in Myanmar (Burma) from September 28, 2012 to October 26, 2012 and our year TRIP in South East Asia, see all the videos from our trip.

  1. This is just great. Reminds me of a time in Taiwan when I was traveling with a friend, and he’d sweat so much that his entire shirt would be the new color, so you couldn’t tell he was sweating at all. It’s like going all the way to the other side of a Mobius strip.
