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.

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
