Hello Will,

Thank you for posting this ~ even though it took me 10 months to discover it!!

Just goes to show that reading through the old threads is worthwhile.

Having been to most of the Theravada countries, I count Bagan, following behind the Holy Places in India, as the site which left the deepest impression on me.
Absolutely stunning - much more so than even these photos can show.

Thank you.
