Our next stop for today would be a country known not only for its devotion to Buddha but also for its “democratic” icon in Aung San Suu Kyi – 1991 Nobel Peace Prize winner – and that country is no other than Myanmar.
So, come and let’s join Mark Wiens in his visit to its capital Yangoon..
Wow, what a vibrant street life, huh?! Those delivery trucks just rolling over the local market’s merchandise.. And that “Barbeque Street” says it all. Interesting place to be – 19th Street.
More so, don’t you just love the lake at Kandawgyi Park? Oh, was that some tree in the middle of the lake?? Cool! And the circular railroad is just what you might need to see even more life around the city!
How about the 65 meter reclining Buddha? Just amazing devotion..
Still, one can say our visit would definitely not be complete if we miss out on the Shwedagon Pagoda. Wow, it’s like we’re in the ‘City of Gold’! Hah!
