    This is the third at last part of my trip to South America.

    I almost missed my ride to the Peru-Ecuador border. A taxi from San Ignacio drove me to the border which was in La Balsa (or La Balza according to Google maps). In the passport control office I interrupted the Peruvian inspector while he was talking to friends. He led me to his office, where his wife sat on a beach chair with short clothes, and his daughter was playing on his computer. He sent me to the police station. All the cops were in the middle of a football game on a field in front of the building. Inside the building, in an open living room, I found a policeman on duty. He rose from his bed, put on his uniform and signed my passport. All very lazily - I guess passing tourists here disrupts their daily routine. 

    I ran with my backpack on the bridge, which ended with a foreign flag - not the Peruvian red-white-red as I was used to. The hour was 5:30 pm, and I knew the last bus to Ecuador should leave any moment - if in Ecuador they're more accurate. Indeed, all the passengers were already on this bus/truck, and they were stalled by me. I had to sign again at the police, stating in front of a "doctor" that I don't have any kind of flu, and changed the rest of the Peruvian money to American Dollars, with a very bad exchange rate (as if I had a choice) with some old lady in the grocery shop.

    Sweaty, from all this running around, I got up to the bus and we left.

    The people of Yangon, like elsewhere in Burma, are extremely friendly and kind. Whenever you need assistance, guidance or anything else, they'll try to help you with a big and honest smile. I remember, while walking in the street market, I dropped my camera battery... a local old man ran with it for a few blocks to catch me, and asked if I lost it. I believe he would have acted the same even it was a money note :)

    Prepare yourself in advance for all possibilities - don't leave to go anywhere without knowing where you're headed, how to get there, how and and when you're coming back. If it's possible have it in Chinese as well.

    Internet: When I was in Burma the Internet was still VERY slow and it was hard to find a decent place to log in, mainly because of government censorship. Most top and mid range hotels do offer WiFi access, and there are cyber cafes in most of the touristic areas (charging per hour), but most of the time the connection is extremely slow. Waiting for a single page to load might take up to 5 minutes, so you might get frustrated when trying to send a simple email.

    The local people are very helpful, and we only found the hotel with the assistance of a driver whom we took advice from. In Žabljak the tourist information as well as the office of Anna Smith are closed on Sundays.
