Ruch hour, downtown Nyaung Shwe

Best thanakha circles to date

Nyaung Shwe is a cool little town, despite seeing quite a number of tourists. It is not actually set up for tourists at all. Many locals are trying, but they retain the local feel, which is great. Myles got a buzz-cut, and a shave. We walked from tea shop to tea shop, people watching. It was a really chill day. We got ready to leave for Kalaw the next morning, mostly by packing up our stuff. We were hoping for an early start.
