Mawlamyine, Myanmar

We continued south to Mawlamyine.

Smallest Room Ever!

We spent one night in this tiny room, a mezzanine level hung out over the reception area. Barely enough room to close the door if we were both standing.

Monk Trying for Glimpse of Kickboxing

We visited a Buddhist site hosting a large festival. We walked inside the reclining Buddha but missed out on the kickboxing as we were so hot and tired by then.

We took a day trip to an island, Bilu Kyun, where we traveled by horse cart and bus.

We visited several home-based businesses including one family making elastic bands. Above: the coloured rubber dries on wood sticks before slicing.
