After yesterday’s quiet visit with the reclining Buddha, today we’re walking into the weekend bustle of Yangon.

In so many cities of the world, a walk through the streets is a walk past glassy storefronts and closed doors. Not so with Yangon. This city feels inside-out, spilling onto the streets with energy and life that can’t be contained. Yangon’s worn and tired buildings show decades of distress, but beauty shines through everywhere you look. Walking brings you immediately in touch with all of it – sights, sounds, smells, discoveries down every street and welcoming people living life in the city.

Tomorrow … the mountaintop sunset I promised you yesterday!

Until then,

Yangon, Myanmar
