Next was the red betle nut juice stained teeth of taxi driver, the traffic in Yangon was mad - even for a Saturday evening with monks in maroon robes in the back of a pick up truck being a common site.
The other immediately arresting thing is both men and women in skirts! The national dress is the longi - men wear it to look like culottes and women to look like a normal long line wrap skirt - trousers haven't caught on here like the rest of South East Asia and it seems practical given the climate.
All the women have the home made beauty/sun cream made out of sander wood - decorating their faces like a yellow blusher.
Also notable is the rain - well I am here in rainy season! At least it makes everything green and lush.
