Jetty

After five days in Bagan, we decided to start moving on to Mandalay. We were told we could take a slow ferry that would take two days and one night. This sounded interesting as it is the choice transportation for locals. When we got on board we were informed it would take two nights and three days. Considering that the bus to Mandalay was cheaper and only took eight hours, we opted against taking the ferry. This worked out well in the end because we ran into some travellers we had met in Yangon the week before.



Young boys play by the waterfront.

A teashop employee poses for a photo.


An older man and young boy wait for the ferry.

One thing we've noticed about the Burmese is that they spend lots of time with their children.

A young girl carries a basket to the ferry.


Lecher meisje!

Women washing their clothes near the boats.

We met these two gentlemen in a village near the jetty.

Yet again we stumbled across a group of kids playing soccer.

Hey Aunty Sue,
Thanks for the comments on the photos! I will be getting lots of prints to show you guys when I come to Ontario.

Hey Mom,
