Our tour guide, Zaw Hein, brought us to Bago on the second day of our tour of the Yangon area. Among the many places we visited was the monastery. We positioned ourselves at the door to the dining area where two large kettles of rice were stationed. When the monks came in a long procession we were to take the rice from the kettles and place the rice plus donations into the containers the monks were carrying. It was very colourful. The rest of our visit to Bago included the four sitting Buddhas, the Mya Tha Lyaung reclining Buddha, Kanbawzathadi Palace,and Shwemawdaw Pagoda. Zaw was a great driver (especially considering the traffic), his English good and gave us a great tour.
