Yangon, Myanmar

I arrived at the bus station in Yangon at around 6:00 a.m. and haggled with some taxi cab drivers for the 45-minute ride into town. I ended up sharing a cab with three other backpackers, so we paid $2.00 each, which is a really good deal. I finally made it to the Motherland II Inn at around 7:00 a.m., where I was lucky to get a room to myself. I crashed all day and finally awoke around 5:00 p.m. I spent the whole evening working on my Taungbyone stories and photos, a laborious process that was really bogged down by the standard molasses-slow Internet connection in Myanmar.
