    I had a great time with Aung. He and his delightful assistant - khinny? - gave me a very comprehensive and well informed tour of Mandalay. In particular they had taken on board my restricted mobility - several guides had ignored the mention made on original request - and tailored the tour accordingly. Both had excellent English. Thanks for a terrific introduction to Mandalay and Myanmar
