As you travel the world, there are places that feel larger than life up close, with so much to comprehend and take in. And then, as you step away from those places for days and months and years, they become even more significant in memory as you look back in wonderment that you were ever there. Bagan is one of those places.

Hundreds of ancient temples reach above the treetops, creating a landscape of history and devotion. Spend your days climbing up and down temples ~ remarkably open and accessible for as far as you care to explore. In the searing spring heat, sunset finally brings relief and a moment to stop and take it all in from the warm brick terrace of a tall temple looking west to its neighbors.

I think we’ll hang out here for a few days in the solitude of this mysterious region.

More tomorrow,
