Today it was yet another early start off to the jetty this time for a river cruise up to Mandalay. It has been much colder than I expected at night, sometimes dipping to the teens. It was a freezing beginning to the day, we were all rugged up ready for a day of cruising up river Ayeyarwaddy.
The day was spent relaxing, reading and basking in the glorious sun. Come night fall, we were to sleep on the boat. I was not looking forward to the freezing conditions, and indeed they were. We slept out on the deck of the boat, luckily we had been provided with a thin mattress and sheets.
It was definitely an experience worth having. A day full of napping, reading and recuperating; ready to take on the rest of the trip.
