Adventures in Asia

Sights and Sounds of Yangon

We had an amazing night here in Yangon.  We ventured out to a teashop and ate at a Chinese night market with another American named Shea. 

 Here is the tea and snacks we ate at the teashop.

This monk stopped us and wanted to know where we were from.  When he found out we were Americans he was very excited.  We were the first Americans he has ever met and we talked to him for about 15 minutes.

At one of the stalls this yellow watermelon was for sale.  We bought and ate some for 50 cents.  Not quite as sweet as the red variety.

Shea had drank in Chinatown a few nights before so that’s where we went–at Kawt, Kawt Resturant.  This cool colonial building was across the street.

We had a few ‘Myanmar’ beers.

This was a great people watching place.  Nuns stopped by and asked for Alms.

Many street boys stopped by to chat.  We ended up giving this one our watergun (the water festival begins tomorrow).

I was also pretty fascinated by these bicycles.  I wonder how old they are?

And at the end of the evening we had kind-of-lame ice cream.

Oh, Francie has a few more things to tell you about in the post below!
