Photographer's Note

FFOL in Myanmar, cont.
We spent full three days in Mrauk U. One day we visited some temples in the center of the city, like the temple with 80 thousand images of Buddha and some other impressive stupas. They were in quite different style than than the temples in Bagan. The second day we went to the Chin villages. The last day my friends felt tired with a very hot weather so I went alone. Of course, I had Lonely Planet with me, but I was not quite sure what I would see. When I saw Koe Thaung Pagoda, what means 90 thousand Buddha images, my jaws dropped. It was amazing, something I didn't expect as I didn't remember any pictures from there. And the temple is very impressive. I will show some closer views later. It is about 2,5 kilometers away so only few turists go there. In fact, I was alone in the temple. Later when I came back to the hotel I showed the photos to my friends. They were disappointeed that they haven't seen maybe the most amazing thing in Mrauk U, or even in Myanmar. So what I had to do? I went once more, in the evening, when it looked marvelous in sunset light.
