Mandalay, Myanmar

P1080295Bicycling is a great way to get around Mandalay.  I rented this old Raleigh bike, which I suspect is over 50 years old.  Most rental bikes are a bit newer and rent for about $2.50 USD daily.

The Ayeyarwady River is also home to some of the poorest neighborhoods I saw in the city.

I thought this was an interesting picture of a woman delivering chickens in Mandalay.  Note the chickens resting on the tailpipe.
