Near the big River

The DVB Roadshow team is in Myitkyina, from where they will explore more of Kachin State this week.


Myitkyina (Burmese: မြစ်ကြီးနားမြို့) is the capital city of Kachin State, located 1,480 kilometers (920 mi) from Yangon. In Burmese it means “near the big river”, and Myitkyina is on the west bank of the Ayeyarwady River, just below 40 kilometers (25 mi) from Myit-son (Burmese for confluence) of its two headstreams (the Mali and N’mai rivers). It is the northernmost river port and railway terminus in Myanmar. (source: wikipedia)


The Roadies are testing the drone (remote controlled camera helicopter) they just received, so let’s see how that works out in the next episode of Doh Pyay Doh Myay next Saturday.
