From Mandalay I went east toward the Shan State in the mountains, taking a train over the Goteik viaduct and walking around in the beautiful city of Hsipaw

Hsipaw in the morning, with young monks walking around asking for rice.
Almost over. With a 113 year old bridge it's limited how much trust I put in it.

I'm guessing these are rice terraces, although there wasn't much rice to be seen when I was walking there.

Vendors along the street at 4:30 in the morning.
The vegetable market in Hsipaw starts at around 3:30 in the morning, so the vendors have candles and lights to show off their goods.
