The second largest city in the country . Aproximately , 2 000 000 people . I went , by night bus , from Yangon . It was supposed 8 hours , but finally it was 17 hours . The bus had a problem and we had to change the bus , after a long wait .
Mandalay is very big and busy . There is a King Palace , the best , were the pictures that you can get with the reflection in the water . There was a local market , but they didnt sell too much food . Anarapura bridge , its very famous for the sunset , but I didnt visit . I didnt have enough time . Mandalay is busy , you cant walk properly , there are many cars and motorbikes .
I spent one day , the hostel was the most expensive that I paid in Myanmar , 8 USD per the room . I barguin and they removed my breakfast , as usual in Myanmar . But at that time , I was really lucky . I helped to the girls , who were working in the hostel , with their English homework . I dont know how they knew that I didnt pay for the breakfast and they asked for the boss . If they can serve me the breakfast next morning . I was surprised for the girls ! Lovely girls , just 10 years old ! The boss told me that I could go for the breakfast nest morning .
The best in Mandalay was the breakfast , papaya , banana , coffee , eggs … The best thing , how happy they were serving the breakfast . Its a pity that girls need to work so young in some countries . At least , the girls were going to the school in the afternoon .
