From the Journals…More from Shwegu, Ayeyarwady River Trip, Burma (Myanmar). January 26, 2011
Misty Morning Boat-YellowBoat in morning mist. Ayeyarwady River, Myanmar (Burma). I woke up with sore hips and lower back. The mattress in the bunk is thin, but for some reason I wasn’t bothered the first night. We had been docked at Shwegu for some time, but loading operations didn’t start until around 6:00. I again forced myself to get out of bed and today was rewarded with some good shots of a fisherman in his boat casting his net in the sunrise mist.
Once we got underway, I had some coffee and cake for breakfast. I was watching the scenery for most of the trip, some from up by the bridge, and some at the lower level by the bow. We went through a couple of gorges that were a dramatic change from most of the flat riverbed we had seen most of the way up.
