Mawlaik, Myanmar

17Feb11

Mawlaik is a larger town with 50,000 inhabitants. Back in the 1920’s it was the administrative center for those of the upper Chindwin River.

This version of a tuk-tuk was our transportation for the day. You quickly learn to hold onto the vehicle while seated. We almost lost one person, no joke. Personally, I prefer the tuk-tuks in India.

An old British colonial house. The second floor is now home to the forest officer. The first floor is vacant.
