A River Runs Through It – In Myanmar
Tuesday, November 24, 2015
If I were a better writer, I’d have a decent shot at describing the adventures we’ve had today. As it is, this sixth day of our Myanmar Explorer river cruise tour with Viking River Cruises was absolutely packed with experiences. That alone makes description difficult. But more than that, it’s putting into context the places, people, sights and sounds that we’ve experienced today that is giving me pause.
As an example: today, we had lunch at an Italian restaurant, set on stilts, in a floating village on Inle Lake, in Myanmar. Have you had oven-fired pizza in Myanmar in a restaurant situated on stilts? I didn’t think so. It’s the kind of thing that, if you saw it in a movie, you’d say, well, I don’t believe that happened! Yet here we are.
Our Live Voyage Report from Viking River Cruises’ Myanmar Explorer continues tomorrow as we travel to Mandalay, Myanmar to board the Viking Mandalay! Be sure to follow along with our adventures on Twitter @deckchairblog.
