Photographer's Note

When we were in Burma, at Mandalay, we decided to travel south to Pagan not by bus but with the Postal Boat on the Irrawaddy River.
It was one of the most beautiful experience of our life. The whole Burma is a fantastic country, with polite, and poor people, but the Postal Boat is the top.
The Irrawaddy is a typical South-East Asian river: gigantic; it's the only one real highway of the country!
The Postal Boat started from Mandalay quay, in front of Mingun Paya at 5:00 AM and arrived for the sunset in Pagan. During the travel it stopped in a dozen of piers, some have around a village, some have around...nothing.
But all are crowded of people.
Some went down, some went up, and all things can go up on the boat...all!
There were also dozens of girls that sold food.
After 13 hours the old and dirty boat arrived at Pagan, the sun was very cose to the land and the last sunrays gave a gold colors to the first Temples of the old city that were built on the banks.
