Photographer's Note

A picture of this pagoda is on the cover of the Lonely Planet with a little monk walking on it. So I decided I wanted to take photos of monks walking on it too! But all the monks I asked, they didn't understand what I meant (didn't have my LP with me) or thought I wanted to take a very static grouppicture of them. So I went down again and searched for our Burmese guide and asked him to find me a cooperative monk. And he did! :-)

For those who are familiar with Myanmar and/or with Boeddism: what's wrong with the actual picture on the cover of the Lonely Planet? (Not phototechnically...)

Yeah, thats right! That novice monk on the LP was wearing footwear and that's forbidden on templegrounds!

PS: the great sky was a very nice bonus from mother nature ;)
