final snippets from bagan, myanmar
Before we move on…a few more special snippets from Bagan…that caught my eye…
temple donation boxes
Why is it that other countries currency always looks more interesting than our own?
myanmar kyat (pronounced “chat”)
It’s considered rude to eat with the left hand as this hand is used for personal hygiene in Myanmar. I don’t know why…but seeing these signs just for one hand always made me chuckle.
It’s so common to see gas for sale along the roadside being sold out of used alcohol bottles. Such a little amount? Scooters don’t need much!
So enjoyed catching a game of cane ball. Their moves were amazing…even more amazing that I seemed to be the only female amongst a bunch of betel nut spitting males! But, they were very gracious as they thought I was from “TV.” If you’ve never seen a betel nut smile here you go!
One day I sooooooo want to spend the day with a goat herder!
Of course one can’t go to Bagan without taking in the glorious sunsets…
So let’s move on, shall we?
The best is yet to come…my absolute favorite of Myanmar…
Inle Lake. Stay tuned!
