First light; Bagan, Myanmar (Burma)

Nothing can prepare you for the wonder and beauty of the mist enshrouded, stupa studded plains of Bagan being revealed to you at the first light of day. It is truly an awe inspiring experience, like seeing the temples of the Angkor Wat complex in Cambodia for the first time at dawn. There is a saying in this part of the world, `same same but different.`

Myanmar is an amazing place to travel and a travel photographers dream with so much to photograph and the people are so friendly. My next stop is Mandalay, but not `The Road to Mandalay` as Kipling wrote the poem about, I shall be taking the train. This should be a great journey full of local colour as most tourists fly from A to B, I will let you know when I get there!
