Monday photo - 27th May


As darkness began to fall, the rain finally ceased as we approached the monumental Shwedagon pagoda in Yangon. Gently removing our shoes at the top of the broad entrance stairs, we stepped onto cool marble, wet feet softly slapping. The thin layer of water coating the smooth floor threw sparkling reflections around us, and although I'm sure the pagoda is beautiful at any time, the rain made it seem that we were surrounded with gold in every direction, reaching both into the sky and deep inside the ground. It was an experience that I'll never forget.
