After breakfast, Zaw Min Tun, the driver drove us around Pagan. We found lots of guides at every Pagoda. They explained the history of Pagoda even though you didn't askt to.
I paid 1K to my guide. I don't know how much my wife gave to her small guide.
It was quite hot in Pagan and we felt it on our feet as we left our foot ware on bus.
I still have a small desert spike in my foot and it was so painful
The Lunch was satisfying but a bit salty to my tongue. Lunch in Pagan cost about 2k each.
We went out again ,after taking a rest in hotel room avoiding noon sun, at 4:30pm. Again to some other famous Pagodas. I found all the guides, all of them are children, spoke in same assent. I don't know if it is Pagan assent. I saw some children sitting under tree beside a Pagoda, attracting tourists. We took photos with them and paid them some cash. I named them "Pagan models".
We had to rush to " Thet Byin Nyu" to watch sun set. Many tourists, young and old, were climbing up the steep steps to catch the sun set and to take photos.
After watching sun set, Zaw Min Tun took us to a Pagoda where he said, an ancient worrior was captured on some phopographs taken recently. The worrior was said to be taking care of the Pagoda.
The photos were displayed and the worrior can be seen wearing ancient costume quite clearly.
But of course I don't believe it !
Tomorrow, We will be heading to Mount Poppa.
Follow me to Poppa!
I'll tell you interesting stories with photos.
