Impressive Bagan

Here is one picture for you.  Bagan is a very old site of primarily Buddhist temples from around 1200 AD.  Here is one picture that made it up on the site.

P1040283

This is the destination that really temps people to travel to Myanmar.  People have heard of Yangon/Rangoon because of that famous Austin Powers’ Dr. Evil line about him growing up spending summers in Rangoon.  And Mandalay, well everyone has seen the motion picture company called Mandalay with the tiger as its image or maybe even remember the Alfred Hitchcock movie ‘Rebecca’ where everyone repeats ‘Oh, Mandalay’ all the time.

But it is Bagan that will be the destination site when the people rise up and overthrow this group of eighth grader generals who managed this coup.  Oh, did I say that outloud?

BTW, check out the Flickr pictures on the right.
