On the Road to Mandalay..
Where the flyin'-fishes play..
An' the dawn comes up like thunder outer China 'crost the Bay! ...
by Rudyard Kipling, AD 1898
`````````````````````

A land known then as “The Golden Land” of British Burma had stirred a romantic imagination of some of the world's greatest writers such as Kipling. The famous poem; "The Road to Mandalay” refers to the great Irrawaddy River, which served as the means of transport for British troops on ferry boats from Rangoon to Mandalay and vice versa during Kipling’s time.

Well... this is on a dusty bumpy road to Mandalay..
not from Rangoon but from Nyaungshwe..

I think the term 'road' should be used loosely here, imho. The horse cart is actually a taxi used by the locals
