Moto Trip

TBT by Cyrus

#tbt the time @j_m_russell and I crashed a Hindu prayer ceremony on our trip across Myanmar. The music was deafening and glorious. Added bonus -- our new friends took us to see Pioneer, a new rest stop on the Mandalay - Yangon highway. #burma #india #travel #vishnu #tabla #harmonium #myanmar #asia #migration

The time Jacob and I crashed a Hindu prayer ceremony on our motorcycle journey across Burma. The music was deafening and glorious. Added bonus -- our new friends took us to see Pioneer, a sparkling new rest stop on the Mandalay - Yangon highway.  Bright lights, expensive tea, slightly sinister water features. The American fever dream. 

End of the ride. by Cyrus

End of the ride. Just sold our bikes in Loikow. Mine came secondhand with these two keychains. I dug the guitar and was somewhat confused about the purpose of the metal stick. Just found out it's an old earwax cleaner. And it rode in my pocket halfway across this country. #myanmar #burma #horror #hygiene #travel #moto #motorcycle #instabad

Just sold our bikes for fistfulls of very low denomination currency.  My bike came secondhand with these two keychains. I dug the guitar and was somewhat confused about the purpose of the metal stick. Just found out it's an old earwax cleaner. And it rode in my pocket halfway across this country...

Drank and billiards by Cyrus

#RawMusic Myanmar motorcycle trip continues. Stopping in villages and asking, through hand gestures and extremely limited language, if anyone around plays music. Some success. A lot of sitting around watching people do their thing. A Kayin village near the border with Bago region. #burma #myanmar #travel #moto #billiards #everydayasia

Our Burma moto trip continues.  At this point we're just stopping in villages and asking, through a series of increasingly desperate grunts and hand gestures, if anyone around plays music. Some limited success. A lot of sitting around watching people do their thing. A Karen village near the border with Bago region.
