The Myanmar discovery circuit - Day 10 (morning cont.) - Yangon - the Botahtaung Pagoda (cont.) - The 21st of November 2015


We then walked around the pagoda outside galleries located around the small lake where a few thousands terapin turtles live.
We came across a young girl who unexpectedley took a photo of Pascale with the family mobile phone and then proudly decided to show it to us. Worshippers were gathered around the image of Rohani Bo Bo Gyi believed to be the guardian spirit of the pagoda.
I noticed a papier machê figure similar to the one I had bought in the morning hanging outside one of the small shrines. It is said to have the gift of protection (I hope it has ... I may need it upon getting back to work).
Before we left we stumbled onto a toddler who despite not being able to walk crawled towards what seemed to interest him.
