Sunset, Sunrise

This seems to be the "thing to do" - climbing a temple to gain a view across the Bagan plain, and taking photos of sunrise or sunset.  Very few of the 2,000+ temples allow you to climb up them but I managed to find a small one yesterday for a few sunset pictures. This morning I got up early and cycled out to the "big one" - where everybody goes with their tour busses and tripods - to catch the sunrise.  I made up for joining the crowds by then cycling over to the local ferry pier and taking in groups of local Myanmar pilgrims doing their own, much more down to earth, temple tours.  One family asked me to join them for breakfast and I did, presenting the father with my treasured silk Chinese fan.
