Myanmar (Burma) Things to Do: 464 reviews and 930 photos
We went to enjoy the sunset on Thanlwin river to some old wooden moorage close to the new bridge. We made photos of this bridge , when suddenly two men in military regimentals appeared somewhere under the moorage and they said unfriendly something to our guide , young burmese girl. She said something in response too , and then these two soldiers just waved their hands , smiled and dissapeared...
When we asked our guide what happened , she told that these soldiers wanted to prohibit us to make photo of this big new bridge . She said them :
` They are Russians ! `
and they replied :
` Let them make their photos , we thought they are American ! `
We were astonished - why there are so different attitudes to Russians and to Americans ?
And at last - the final `good bye` photos of serene charmin` city by name Mawlamyine...
See you !
