On the morning of the 51st day, we went into Yangon. We took a 1.2 hour bus ride from the port into Yangon, then walked from the town center to the north side of lake Kendagyi, where Chatrion Hotel is, where Tom, Mara (from Nike Foundation) and Daniel are staying. We did work with Daniel & Cynthia.

On the way from the hotel we had a small adventure. It was about a 45 minute walk, at a slow pace. There was interesting street food of tons of meet or duck parts but unfortunately I didnt get to try this.

Cinema seems pretty big here (especially Korean Horror films): I am dying to see these:

All the guys kept spitting this deep red colored liquid and we wondered what it was? So we tried some:

Things I noticed: Lots of pagodas and temples, and the street chickens looked a bit funny to me: IMG_8269smfx IMG_8267smfx

And we spent the day brainstorming about new names for a manufacturing company that takes into account the entire scope of what it is that we are trying to achieve, and the philosophy behind it.

Unreasonable at Sea day 50: Yangon, Myanmar

At the end of the day of arrival to Myanmar day 49), I stayed on ship and did work late into the evening. I slept at night and woke up and did work the next day. Day 50 I mostly tried to catch up on documentation, some electronics, and a bit of admin catch up. It wasn’t super fun but was super necessary. That evening Cesar and Sebastian spoke about Protei and Open H2O. We eventually went out for a walk in the late evening at around midnight in order to finally get outside. We walked around the port but there wasn’t really too much to see. There are piles of wood all over and big cranes moving around the wood. There are a lot of Korean buses parked all over the port here, and a few big cargo ships with big cranes and people working all night.DSCN0764 DSCN0763
