#gamerchef making friends with more temple cats. One of them thinks he is a great, comfy bed. So cute. #cats #catsofinstagram #catsofyangon #temple #travel #yangon #myanmar Will really miss Myanmar... #buddha #travel #yangon #myanmar I wanted something local nearby to eat for our last lunch here. They came up with this one, they say its Kachin food. Hope it is good. Lol. #lunch #food #travel #yangon #myanmar Waiting for the right light. It feels like half of Yangon is here. #travel #pagoda #yangon #myanmar What do locals do on a Sunday? #park #travel #yangon #myanmar Back in Yangon. They let us check-in early for free as returning guests. Yay! But no breakfast, so we ventured out in the market a block away. Found youtiao that people buy as soon as its cooked. Also some fresh strawberries. We just asked for tea at the hostel. So good. Yangon, so far, was kindest and easiest for us. #breakfast #travel #yangon #myanmar
