My first hour in Yangon, Myanmar

Yangon,Myanmar- I just arrived from A quick hour n a half flight from Bangkok. From the air plane could see rice paddies. The five year old airport was clean and impressive. There it was VISA on arrival. Me, and two caucasian foreigners were in queue, with some confusion with the paperwork. They do require passport photos (2) and I paid US $40 for my visa. You do need the proper paperwork though for businesses so I suggest tourists to get visa in the embassy before going to Myanmar.Also, come prepared with crisp US dollars. Any little mark will ot be accepted.

I got into a 1980s Corolla taxi and made my way to my hotel. Here are snaps on my iPad:
