answer to Mt. Olympus
It was possible and easy to rent a car
on the trip between Bagan and Mandalay. It also made it possible
to visit Mt. Popa (which was worth the detour since it was one of
the most holy places in the country). The car rental was the
only enjoyable transport I experienced in Burma on the first trip.
I found the destinations incredible, but the trips were always an
ordeal to try to recover from. This trip was the the only one I needed
no recovery time.
