Images – Cruising the Irrawaddy River – Magical Mystery Ride

 Magical Mystery Ride


Heading north on the Irrawaddy River, Diane and I enjoy the view of our last sunrise in Myanmar on the bow of our ship, the RV Indochina Pandaw.  Feeling the warmth of tInle_3738he rising sun on our faces and with a westerly breeze blowing across the ship reducing the incessant 90% dew point to a livable 23 degrees Celsius, the river comes to life with fishermen firing up their narrowed power vessels, and barges enjoined by tug boats blaring warning shots in a quiet dawn to announce their domination on the channels.  It’s a scene played out every day on the Irrawaddy irrespective of our presence as guests to witness this timeless event.  Unfortunately, like all journeys, the circle closes on this photographic voyage with memories permanently stored in the Dizon Family Cloud, my 64 GB Flash Drive and my SD camera memory chip.  This morning we board Bangkok Airways from Mandalay to our Thai sanctuary, the Shangri-La Hotel.
