Dhala part 3

During our trishaw ride in Dhala we made stops to visit a few local businesses. The spring roll wrapper shop had two young men making the wrappers and two women doing the packaging.

On our way back to the ferry, our guide (Lily) noticed a wedding celebration taking place and arranged for us to check it out. We met the newlyweds and were then invited inside. He is 28 and she is 16.

Just married.

Erich liked the drink we were offered. It was made with milk so I spared myself the digestive agony and did not partake.

As the ferry filled up, people cruised back and forth hawking their goods.

Watching the passengers exit was entertaining. People were offloading a variety of items. In the second photo below notice the guy with a cart of chickens.

imageUpon reaching Dhala we traveled by local trishaw (hybrid tricycle and rickshaw) through town. Dhala is very different from Yangon and has many trees, local neighborhoods, and quiet side streets.
