Where I stayed
On the way back we make a slight detour to the Red Mountain vineyard. It is well worth the steep cycle and we watch the sun go down over the lake with a fabulous glass of true Burmese wine, surrounded by every Frenchman in Myanmar, quelle suprise. As soon as the sun slips behind he hills we're off at Tour de France speed to get home before all the light disappears. It is amazing how performance is improved with two glasses of wine on board.
That night our luck runs out and whilst Jon is singing to the tune of 'keep on running', I'm a bit more of an 'uptown girl' and so we loose two days confined to the guesthouse. Myanmar food 1, Izzy & Jon 0.
The Inle lake dogs are dawgs in da hood. In daylight hours, the streets are littered with slumbering muts not moving an inch, then as dusk approaches they all slink off to their East side or West side gangs and war is waged in the early hours. First one pack breaks into loud and prolonged wolf like howling ensued by the opposition after which a huge brawl takes place on the waste ground/battleground behind our hotel. The hotel dog is clearly involved as it sleeps under the swinging chair all day and looks worse for wear in the mornings.
