Myanmar - Feb 6th 2013 - Myittha - We arrived after dark again on this day, to a town large enough to have a hotel allowed to host foreigners, so we thought. On the edge of town, we stopped at this gas station to ask if there was a guesthouse we could stay at and they said no, but then promptly invited us to stay at their house, but first, "we must ask the government." Well, the police said no, and after 2 hours of registering our passports and eating some dinner, we were forced to hire a pickup truck to drive us to a town with a foreigner hotel. Although Kyaukse town could have taken us, only 16 miles away, since it was in the opposite direction (east) of where we were headed, we opted to be driven 50 miles west to Myingyan. The cost for this was US$70 total, which we paid.
