Our second last stop: Inle lake, 30 minutes flight from Mandalay. This time we fly in the afternoon because two of us do not feel well. Although booked for the morning flight we just do not turn up at the airport. Later on, when the sickness get better, the travel agent next door reissue our air ticket for an additional fee of 10 USD each, what a courtesy!
