Made some new friends in Mandalay. Really beautiful small border town way up in the mountains. Clean air and lots of smiles made for a great trip. Played volleyball with some local kids and spent time learning from them some of the areas where they need the most help. This area of Burma was under rebel control just a few years ago but now the government seems to have it well in hand. We felt safe the whole time and went around to several small villages. Beautiful countryside and amazing people. We had an incredibly beautiful sky overhead for a lot of the trip.
