Our guide was Ouzo and he was the fastest 59 year old trekker I have ever met.

The hike was awesome and he very informative about many aspects of Myanmar: history, the people, flora, fauna, agriculture, education, economics, etc.

We hiked through 3 different villages, poked our heads into a school, and chatted with locals along the way.

For lunch we went to a Nepalese place at the top of a hill with an amazing view. We ate freshly made chapatis with avacado. Avacado's in China are very rare and very expensive (at $6 each I have yet to eat one) so it was a nice treat even though others thought the lunch was kind of bland.
