Saturday 25 February – Yangon


Today was a bonus day, an extra day in Yangon because we miscalculated which was the last day of the cycling trip and made our return to NZ flights accordingly. However Greg has to go down to clendon the day we get home at midnight so getting some rest before the trip home makes sense. So we had a nice relaxing day reading including the New York Times and made a foray out to the Scott market, a huge outfit with lots of stalls and some proper shops selling material for lungis and wraparound skirts, jandals, souvenirs, beads, gems, sunglasses etc, and patronised by both tourists and locals, in the afternoon via taxi. We ate samosas, spring rolls and chick pea patties at the side of the road taking in the ambience of this chaotic city and when we ran out of ideas taxied home. Loperamide has helped my slightly dicky bowel today.
