20100209 : Road to Rathedaung

It was early in the morning, and the weather was too cold. It has never been felt such cool weather more than a decade already. We woke up around 6:00 am and went out for breakfast. There was one of the tea shop nearby the telecoms: office of Akyab. It was so nice to have spicy Mont Ti in such cold weather. It made me sweat and warm up my body , and good for health also.

We took three-wheeled vehicle, similar to Toke Toke of Thailand, to Akyab jetty. Akyab was just woke up.

We were entering the boundary of Akyab Jetty area.

The three-wheeled motor-biked vehicle was becoming the main transport for the capital of Arakan state. Everywhere is still same conditions like a few decades ago. Who will believed that there was such kind of place unchanged for several decades? Can we say that we were preserving the Post World War II Akyab until to-date?

Here are another main transport vehicles of Arakan, known as Sampan. As of Arakan and Tanintharyi were occupied by British in First Anglo-Burmese War (5 March 1824-24 February 1826) earliest in Burma, there were so many adopted words from English language to Arakan. For example, hospital was called sick line, half cut barrel was still called drum in Arakanese also. You can study a lot of words adopted from English language in A Guide to Arakanese Language.

Behind there, you can see the traditional dockyard for big Sampan.

There were so many seagulls flying around our ship, you can buy and feed them from the ship also. If you throw the food to them, they will fly around and catch that food skillfully.
