Bagan to Chiang Mai

Just after take off
Just after take off. Bagan is glowing in gold and terracotta colors. In the afternoon before, a heavy thunderstorm was washing off the dust. During that tempest we had some worries about weather the next days. But in the morning all worries were gone and the flight to Chiang Mai could take place.

Sightseeing tour
Everybody in Myanmar was very friendly. The hotel was very nice. The food was excellent. Our tour guide rather lazy and way to expensive. The handling at the airport impeccable. So we took a chance to ask for a sightseeing tour over the Bagan site. It was instantly granted. We made a beautiful turn over the Pagodas.

Rice fields
Rice fields in Myanmar, close to Mandalay. We tried to get a view of Mandalay, but the cloud coverage was to thick to see anything of that marvelous town.

Chiang Mai
When we landed in Chiang Mai it was like returning to a known place. Stephan was very happy as his mobile would work again and there was WIFI in the hotel. We took a 2 hour tour around town. The impression Chiang Mai left in us was a very positive one.

This one goes to my father-in-law, I suspected Lenin was the reincarnation of somebody else. Now, with this picture there is the proof.

Creatures
These creatures, some sort of temple guardians, would definitively scare away me in the middle of the night.
