View 1985 on 1985 trip's travel map.

Wednesday 16th January 1985

Struggle through Rangoon to the YMCA feeling very feeble, collapse into bed on the top floor with the ceiling fan lurching around above me. Nobby and Tee catch the afternoon flight so we exchange addresses.
Lunch stop

Lunch stop

Get up during the day for shit shower shave, drink a few lime juices and eat some fresh yoghurt. Feel useless and nauseated all day. In the evening make an attempt to sell Walkman for dollars, but I must look like death as everyone keeps away. One of the Germans exchanges his for a large traditional puppet. A Dutch guy moves into my room and tells some horrible tale about an air ticket disaster and being arrested in the Punjab for being there. Sell my Burma guide for 10HK$, what a bargain!
Sorry to miss exploring Rangoon.
