Dear Family and Friends,
"Min gala ba" -- Hello.
Just over the wall is the main road. I can hear the occasional grind of a motor bike, a pleasant beep of a bus, the clippity-clop of a horse pulling a small, covered, upholstered cart -- my choice for getting around Bagan.
Just across the road is the long promenade to the Swezigon Paya (Pagoda or Temple).
