Arrived late here so tours had to be rearranged. Started with a visit to Swedagon Pagoda at night. Impressive. The next morning we took an all day tour to Bago . On the way we stopped at the WWII cemetery which is beautifully maintained and very moving. We visited a monastery, had a good lunch and saw the Shwethalyauhg Reclining Buddha. Local women wear a yellow paste on their cheeks for sun protection. Drove through a sudden and very strong hailstorm on the way back. The driver had to pull over and stop because he couldn’t see. The next mowe visited a fascinating local market. Not to be missed.
