I think I understand why this is the road less travelled
Bagan a world out of this world. More like a mythical place right out of a adventure movie. The valley has thousands and thousands of Temples and Pagodas springing up from the earth in every direction. the last count done came up with 4600 Temples/Pagodas i think they were only counting the larger ones. If you were to count the small ones it would be well over 10,000. the bus ride from Mandalay to Bagan was a adventure in itself. Not one, not two, but THREE flat tires. The 2 of them running the bus, were a expert pit crew (they use to do Indy cars "I Think"). First tire change only took 5 minutes from stop to start. The second we had to ride on a km or two to get changed in the next town. As we were getting the first 2 tires fixed a third decided to deflate. Overall a 200km trip took 9 hours, only a half hour more then what we were original told. I guess they factor in a flat or two. Good adventure, had a lot of laughs with the monk sitting next to me.
I walk these streets, a loaded six string on my back
I play for keeps , cause I might not make it back
I been everywhere, still I'm standing tall
I've seen a million faces
And I've rocked them all
With every new place I visit “The World” seems to get a little smaller, but “My World” seems to get a little bigger.
Since a picture is worth a thousand words. I will let them do the majority of the speeking for me.
