WATCH: 37 Biking Inle Lake Myanmar (Burma)
Our first stop was to figure out our transportation back to Mandalay. We met friendly five year-old Mimi. On the road, we saw a group practicing their leg rowing. The ride was beautiful—we saw red lotus flowers, fields and many animals. The road was not so good so everyone went slowly. I liked that.
After visiting the Thupin resort, we took a boat across. EIGHT of us with EIGHT bikes in one BOAT! It was a bit crowded but memorable. We ate lunch with Claire and Bruno from France. Together we visited the monastery—a true cacophony of voices. The best part of the local Red Mountain Estate winery was the view from the top of the hill. When we returned to town, they had built a platform next to our hotel for the upcoming ceremony. We ate dinner at Everest restaurant. We are planning to go to Nepal later in our journey. Will I be a good trekker? I am a much better biker now! Maybe I will be a good trekker. We ate Dal Baat and talked about our plans for the future.
