Crossing in to Burma from Mae Sot.

Early morning in Burma.


Myawaddy is a town in south-eastern Myanmar in Kayin State close to the border with Thailand. Separated from the Thai border town of Mae Sot by the Moei River, the town is most important trading point between Myanmar and Thailand.  Burmese people far outnumber Thai people in Mae Sot. The main wet market and tea shops provide the best introductions to Burmese culture, evoking the uncanny sense of having stumbled out of Thailand. Burmese language is heard throughout the city, Burmese restaurants and food stalls are abundant, signs are often written in Burmese, and naturally the people working in the lowest-paid or most labor-intensive jobs are almost always Burmese.

Burma, lots of smiling people. This dad and his family pulled over for a photo.
My wannabe guide Ali. I'm sure he is related to the forty thief's but a funny guy.
