    The hotel is just outside the walls of the old imperial city of Bagan, which means that it is nowhere. The hotel is pleasant enough but older and rather dated. Good sized room but no sound insulation at all. You can hear a conversation in the corridor. There are far better choices in town.

    Getting up at 4:00 am reminded me of being on call, I think retirement is definitely superior. Checking in for a domestic flight was an unique experience, although we are on a group tour, at no time did anyone want any identification! We could be anybody.

    Asian Wings, a local airline, apparently has only two rather ancient Embraer …

We left for Ananda temple (dedicated to Buddha's scribe and brother) with two giant wooden Buddhas with the early Indian influence (ear lobes not touching the shoulders, open robes with visible knees and with a Nepalese facial shape. We were amazed that the two original 10 metre high Buddhas were at least androgynous if not plain feminine in their appearance. We were met outside the pagoda by a local villager ...

    after the other, the stupa, pagoda and shrines, the bigger ones as big and vain

    Legend has it (and legend plays a big role here) that the largest structure

    ... I digress.

    Though uncomfortable, this was an unforgettable experience because it gave us the chance to get up very close to a whole bunch of these pagodas - small ones, middle-sized ones, ones that were falling down. Just winding in and about and through them in the dust and the afternoon heat - it was an amazing jaunt. I dislike the continual use of the word 'amazing', but it truly was.

    We slowed before ...

    ... only go around (clockwise according to the Buddhist tradition, counterclockwise according to the Bon tradition) then this will be a stupa.

    Visiting temples in Bagan takes time and energy as they are scattered in quite big area so consider renting a bike or e-bike (much better!) and take your time soaking up the amazing atmosphere. Many tourists take 2 days here but 3 or 4 days may be recommended. Having a guide might be a nice option or good ...
