Today I wandered around lesser temples. This is an offshot of the temple next door, which doesn't allow photos. The art style resembled fleur di lys from Renaissance Italy, hundreds of years later.
There are hundreds of small temples like this. And lots of rules:
The stupas are solid. Some of them are brick. The valued ceilings with a lotus flower at the center are amazing.
We drove to the monastery and Cho showed me the caves where monks go in the summer to cool off.
You can see the grass growing in the cracks.
We had a special treat for lunch: Phyo, our adorable Bagan guide, invited us to her village for a home-cooked lunch.
Barack Obama's visit to The Lady (Aung San Suu Kyi). General Aung Sang. is revered throughout the country, almost as much as his daughter.
My eyes are closing. So much more to explore toorrow.
