Kyaukme, Shan state, Myanmar

記憶中從未試過在真正農居留宿,這次三天兩夜撣邦山區遠足,坐爬山電單車、戶外沖凍水涼、找樹枝當行山杖……

As far as I can remember I’ve never had more rural experience than this 3D2N hiking trip in Shan state, Myanmar, riding on motor-bike (as passenger), taking quick-and-cold-water-only shower outdoor and carrying tree branch as walking pole.

我們的導遊是25歲已有8年導遊經驗的Joy。他是緬甸人,祖父從中國雲南遷到緬甸撣邦,精通英語、普通話,略懂法語。他的英語具濃濃的美國口音,十分十分十分流利,可暢談緬甸軍政府的不是、佛教道理、朋友間的緋聞等等……他的語言程度好得令人咋舌,亦十分佩服他的生意頭腦!

Our guide is 25-year-old local Burmese guy who already has 8 years of experience.  His grand family migrated from Yunnan province China to Shan state Myanmar.  He speaks extremely fluent heavily American-accented English, Mandarin and some French, talks Burmese Government, Buddhism wisdoms and gossips about friends… Fantastically language proficiency and amazing business mind.

He also taught us how to blow bubbles by twisting the plant stem

行程是分別兩晚留宿兩條位於Kyaukme 北部及南部的村落,第一天開始便遇著下雨,路狀不佳,我們多次投靠路上的民居避雨,他們都好客得很,會奉茶招待我們幾個,感覺上緬甸人是十分健談的民族,縱使Joy 與他們並不認識,但都可以談上數十分鐘!

Our route was staying one night each in villages located in Northern and Southern Kyaukme.  It was raining when we first started the tour and the road condition undesirable.  For a few times we stopped at local residents’ house to wait and were treated very well.  Tea is often served even to strangers like us and we can feel that Burmese are generally talkative to passers-by and chat for minutes and hours.

第一晚的村落叫 Nuang Pyaet,大部分是稻米農戶,從觀察可推斷他們生活不俗,我們的晚餐跟他們的相差不大:白米、butterfly leave soup、煎蛋、豆湯、及炒椰菜花,都是他們區內的農作物。

The first village we stayed over was Nuang Pyaet of which residents are mainly rice farmers.  It seems that they do live a fairly average lives by observing their dinner food.  We were served rice, butterfly leaf soup, fried egg, bean soup and fried cauliflower, all locally grown.

Our dinner, so delicious

在村內遇上兩位來自法國的背包客,從他們的導遊得知,他們的緬甸簽證只剩下5天期限,但他們的預算十分緊拙,所以只可用步行的方法完成遠足(我們以大約20美元租用電單車代步某些路段),而他們必須在限期前離境,真替他們的“前景”擔憂!

We met two backpackers from France and knew from their guides that their visas had only 5 days left before its expiry and they were on tight budget so trying to leave the country on foot.  A bit worrying fact as they must leave before the due date.
