We left the Yangon hotel very early on the 13th so as to fly to Mandalay. We had therefore no time to have breakfast and ended up carrying breakfast boxes which had been kindly prepared for us.
Due to unexpected adverse weather conditions at the airport of destination we ended up having to land at Bagan airport and wait for something like two hours under the shade of the aircraft wings or by just lying on the tarmac (... I couldn't help thinking about safety issues in regards to European standards and how this would have never been possible in Europe) till take-off was announced. Some of us walked back and forth towards the terminal room, which was no more than a rather simple and small hall way. This was definitely an experience I will never forget.
By the time we landed at Mandalay airport it was time to lunch, so we drove to the hotel we would be accommodated at and soon after checking in made our way to the restaurant room, where we had another marvellous vegetarian and sea food meal.
