Adventures in Asia

Amazing Bagan

Now that we have a better internet connection I wanted to post some more pictures and a video of Bagan. 

Bagan is a major archaeological site in SE Asia and is one of the primary reasons people travel to Myanmar (it sure isn’t to marvel at the great job the junta government is doing).  At one time there were several thousand functional Buddhist sites at Bagan and now there are about 300 temples. 

While the individual temples are not as impressive as, say, Anghor Wat, the area is amazing because everywhere you look is a temple.  Here is a video from atop a Buddhist temple.

Here are a number of scenic pictures of both the horizon and inside the temples.

Here are some new friends Francie made while we were watching the sunset.  Many of them wanted to sell us postcards (see post below).
