Yangon is where my travel in Myanmar started and ended. I had to give Yangon a second chance – the first time I left it with mixed feelings and lots of dust and traffic fumes cluttered up my nose and throat.
The second time I was not only welcomed by unlimited traffic but also by the lovely Gemma, a Dutch girl living in Yangon. I’ve happened to meet her over the summer while both volunteering at a music festival. In Yangon,
Gemma has found herself a great appartment in downtown Yangon. She decorated it with great taste and AirBnB is now paynig the rent. She teaches English too and is working on setting up a cycling tour for tourists.
I got a different Yangon experience whle staying with Gemma. Especially the many art galleries and cosy cafés and restaurants with healthy food made Yangon much more the place to be than I orginally I thought it was. That is, except for the lack of accessible swimming pools… 😉
