Souvenir from our visit to the Shwe Da gon pagoda in Yangon. it seems very serene, and it is but when you go there early in the morning it has the look and feel of an intimate amusement park with one big theme: Buddha.
Flickering disco lights around Buddha statues, couples in love walking hand in hand and holding flowers, young girls playing and ringing huge bells, young guys sitting in the shade of shrines and playing with their mobile phones….
This pagoda is not only a religious spot but also a meeting place with a social function. People here meet, chat, walk, observe, rest, pray, …. learn from this, you Catholics ;)
