IN THE COOL COOL OF THE EVENING – GLITTERING IN RANGOON
Last night . . .
In the cool of the early evening in Rangoon, Jim and I turn the corner onto the platform of Buddhist shrines. The gilded stupa of this ‘Golden Pagoda’ glitters with such stunning impact.
Barefooted, in wonderment, we walk around this 8-sided central stupa, 99 meters tall and gilded with gold leaf, taking in the scene of families visiting and praying here and in the 64 smaller stupas.
Then back with our shoes and a quick ride back to the ship to join Pam and Ken for dinner.
