…boys must enter the monastery… for a minimum of one week

…they can stay or they can go after that…

…girls on the other hand…get their ears pierced…

…Hmmm…seems pretty fair to me!

  • U Bein Bridge…built in 1850…

…world’s longest teak footbridge gently curves 1300 yards… monsoon season water levels can easily rise above it…

FUN-fact: Discovery Channel is filming in Mandalay today and has been at every one of our afternoon stops including the Monks evening prayers!
