Aung San and Suu Kyi

Warm and dry coffee shop at Mile 25 camp after walking 10 miles in the rain from the village of Tikon (see Faces of Tikon). Hot tea and cookies were delicious. I gave my rain pants to the policeman (U Htee Zard) who had steadied me down all of the slippery clay slopes along the way in this coffee shop. I was particularly pleased to see the nice portrait of Bogyoke Aung San and daughter Suu Kyi displayed in such a prominent position.


Buddhas and Buddhas and Buddhas

Assortment of plaster buddhas at Mohnyin Tambuddhei Paya (see Thambuddei Paya and Thambuddhei Paya II) in Monywa, Sagaing Region, Myanmar. I made a small donation to the temple and one of these little guys was placed along the wall in my honor. For the benefit of all beings. [NOTES: Plans are bring made for a return trip to northern Myanmar in May].
