21 January – Rangoon

Today we had a day trip arranged to see more stupas, monastries and pagodas in Bago a two hour drive away…….when in Asia do as the Asians do!
Our hotel had arranged a driver, in actual fact they have got a cab from the street for us! The driver, Mad Dog McRae, seemed a little clueless as to where all the sights were, but after a few enquiries and us directing him we made it to all the locations. The highlight was a visit to a buddhist monastery to see the monks have lunch.

We watched sunset from the 20th floor of a tower block with an expensive beer and a dry chocolate brownie.
