Without much time to write, today we have taken the opportunity to take a quiet day taking a boat trip to the city of Mingun, leaving the afternoon free.Mingun, more than the cultural importance that it could have, it is a town of very kind and calm people, and we have had a better time taking a walk, knowing its people, and taking something next to the breeze of the river, not for its monuments themselves.

We are going to put the pictures of the day and take the opportunity to answer the comments. In the morning, breakfast at the hotel and a flip before leaving. The hotel, the truth is that it is cool.




He pier It was quite a show. There we take a kind of barge (which gives some fear) and heading to Mingún, our destination of the day ...




Life around the Irrawaday River is intense. With poor means, fishermen and families try to make the most of the river's means. The day is splendid, and people work with a smile ...

 


Today it is one of those that are beginning to be very common "sacrifices" (See Sacrifice of Petra or The Climb to the Golden Rockof this trip to Burma) to climb to the first thing we see, hehe: the unfinished Pagoda, Mingun Paya



We can also see an impressive Bell of 90 tons that belonged to a Pagoda that did not end, and the Pagoda of Hsinbyume Paya




But, as we said before, the best thing was undoubtedly the walk along the river all the way, see the oxcarts that transported people as if it were a normal tte, to the population (we bought a lots of things there) and sit down to have a Myanmar beer, a cool beer next to the river. In addition, we have made a friend who seems a lie, I understood Spanish. It was called Ima.




Back, we have taken advantage of to sunbathe in the east boat that floated ...

And now, we just got a good zampada before coming to the hotel, at the Western BBB yesterday. Oh, by the way, families, we are eating well. Burmese food has everything ... cow, chicken, duck, pork, sweet, curry, salty ... masters ... don't worry. For 3.5 euros Prawns, beef tenderloin, jijiji ... !! LOOK LIKE EAT ARALE !! !! LOOK! LIFT



Ah, now we are going to take a sieston on the sole, if we can and tonight we are going to go through Mandalay by car-broom of those to a Little Bit of Mandalay of Burmese food. But we don't put this on you anymore, today we rest from the internet, that other nocturnal things have occurred to us, like a show at the hotel. See you tomorrow.

EXPENSES OF THE DAY: 34,150 (approx 22eu)
