Wouldn’t you know it? Ailsa announces her theme ‘Golden’ the day AFTER I published the ‘Gold Pounders’ Street in Mandalay’.
But never fear, there’s enough golden vistas in Myanmar to go around, especially in Bagan. The only problem is trying to figure out which particular golden pagoda to select.
This is the Loka Nanda stupa and it’s a great place to watch the sun setting on the Irrawaddy River. We were just across the water from it, in the Sunset Garden Riverside Restaurant, another great place to watch the sunset in Bagan.
Some competition on the theme ‘Golden’ from Mother Nature.
Darkness falls, but the stupa still gleams gold from the lighting.
