Myanmar: Moving about in Mandalay (video)

 

WATCH: Moving about in Mandalay, Myanmar (Burma)

September 30, 2012 When we arrived in the large highway bus station, I asked a man for Royal Guesthouse. He left and Toto appeared (yes, like from Wizard of Oz). He said, “I am a representative of Royal Guesthouse but I left at 2pm so I am not sure if we have rooms or not. It is 7000K to go the 11km to the guesthouse. If we do not have rooms or you do not like them we can take you to another place.”

He said one of us could sit next to the driver. Moritz told him to sit there but he said no. He sat on the ledge of the trunk. He spoke good English and fairly non-stop. He told us about his English teachers and a special ceremony for the next day. Royal Guesthouse was full. Garden Hotel was full. Nylon hotel did have two double rooms but one was not very nice for the price in comparison. E.T. Hotel did have rooms. See all our videos for more of our videologue of our trip.

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.
