    It is an experience in itself. the kind of airports which have long ago vanished into history. the entrance is more like a bus station where your tickets are checked and then there is a baggage check and then yet another baggage check. everything is so cursoy and both times my hand luggage was not checked. very laid back atmosphere. a nice experience. bamar airways also has an office there but on this day there was only one flight and that was with air bagan.

    Air Bagan flies three or four times a week from Yangon via MDL to Mytikyina. the flights are about one hour each. good service. it was a good day to fly. following the ayerrawarry river to mandalay. could see bhamo from above and the bend in the river where the river becomes narrow.

    a plump moslem woman sat behind the counter and there were the usual things for sale that one sees in the stalls by the road plus a few news papers and magazines. they are very keen on health oriented magazines, like the americans and europeans are interested in self help books.

    quiet and quaint airport at mytikyina

    There are two areas for waiting for the plane. one is for the generals with its shiny column and clean floors, and the rest for others whether or not you are a tourist. i was able to wander around the airport as i wished and went even as far as the runway and the control tower. there were some gun toting soldiers but the overall feeling is one of laid back.
