The hills of eastern Myanmar.

I traveled most of the day, going from Bagan to Nyaungshwe, by minivan. The journey of twisting turns and rapidly rising and falling terrain offered many scenic views but was not very easy on the stomach. I was relieved when we reached Nyaungshwe just before sunset.


Nyaungshwe is a small town in eastern Burma whose main draw is its proximity to the beautiful Inlay Lake. I had booked a hotel online a few days prior to my arrival, and with a few glances at the map in my guidebook I was able to find my way to “The Little Inn.” On the walk there I met a curious beast (see photo).
