Pyin Oo Lwin TrainOo Lwin Pyin train
When we had left our motel and walked through a calm Hsipaw, we reached the train terminal and reached a plattform full of people. However, the box offices only opened 45 mins before the train left. There was a little waiting time, but it means we could buy some food for the trip.
After the opening we reserved our seats in the "normal" category - it was good to know that our money came with our endowment policy. Usual lessons for commoners! In the train we realized that everyone except us and three others were in the V. I. P. C. classes. We' been having such a great one.
We sat on boards that became a bit more convenient as our tramps became deaf and we could be with the people. I was a little annoyed how the VIP' kept getting into the cars of the regular classes just to take pictures. That train was moving a good deal.
If I mean a heap, I mean pockets that crash on our minds, you couldn't just run between the coaches and you were put over the seats for half the trip. These are all movements when the train was only traveling at a top velocity of 30km/h! We could get off at every train stop, have lunch and take pictures before we started out.
Not in V. I.P. grade, maybe. It was a really nice trip. We' ve been on the train for 7h and it would have been another 6h to Mandalay when we arrived very later. After a short stop in the city of Pyin Oo Lwin we went for one evening to discover the next one.
We left the train depot looking for a place to stay. We' ve found a place where we wanted to stay as little as possible. Later in Mandalay we found out that two other women had exactly the same thing, but we were all in different shelter.
Pyo Oo Lwin is contaminated!!! After we brought a delivery truck into town, we reached Mandalay 2h later.
