We headed out this morning to soak up a bit of Old Bagan. It is a shaded, acacia-lined area with many beautiful temples and a very relaxed feel. We visited Bupaya, an ancient and often visited Stupa near the river. We posed for some pictures with a couple of school groups and enjoyed seeing the excited kids milling about and creating havoc.
Huge pig, flying squirrel and gourd conquered!
Afterwards we sought out a veggy restaurant, Be Kind to Animals The Moon, a popular pick for tourists with lots of birds nests hanging from the rafters and a friendly staff.
To the Moon Alice
We finished our morning visit at the largest temple in Bagan, Dhammayangi Pahto, that was the site of much evil doing by a King who commissioned it and has a reputation for being haunted. We managed to walk around it without seeing any Nats or ghosts but I wouldn’t venture there after dark!
