The bus ride from Yangon to Taunggyi. This is a picture taken after the road ahead of our bus was blocked by rocks. Many of the locals opted to walk past the rocks and try to find other transportation as we were within about 15 km of Kalaw. The rest of us waited out the twelve hours it took to clear the road. You can see the line of buses and trucks ahead of us, there was a much larger line behind us. Private cars are very uncommon in Myanmar.
