So we flew back from Bhamo all refreshed and went onto the is colonial town which moved en masse from Rangoon in the hot summer.

We visited the National Kandawgyi Gardens, basically like Kew Gardens in London and Anisakan Falls which were lovely and where we were treated like stunt men or hunks because we swam in the pools and under the waterfalls themselves. Pretty good times were had.

The town itself has lots of British colonial buildings and nice old British houses with red bricks, very plush. Plus it's a lot cooler up this way, so it was a nice escape from Mandalay.
