Saturday, 9 Apr 2011 | Views [1202]

We wanted to get out of Mandalay for a day. It´s not the best looking city in the world. On top of that, it was very hot and noisy. Also some strange wind blew in last evening and covered everything in fine red dust. So we read about those botanical ... Read more >
