City Views.141

Herewith all the remaining photos from my visit early last month to Shwedagon Pagoda, in Yangon. There are fountains for each day of the week and many visitors use the basins to wash the statues and flowers at the fountain for the day of their birth. I’m a Thursday-born guy. One day (Wednesday, I think) has two fountains, one for morning and one for afternoon. I don’t begin to understand the complexities of this cosmology, but did find this place remarkable.

  2. Amazing. I have to say that I love the fact that you went through there wearing a Papua New Guinea baseball cap.
