20141110-IMG_8351Bagan, Myanmar is one of those ancient mysteries  that is hard to believe. Its existence defies logic and makes one question if they are still on Earth.

I was sure it would disappear into a misty dream at any moment and I would wake up back in the dusty town hotel.  

But Bagan was, and remains, a real place.

4000 primordial temples rise from an endless sea of greenery like an army of alien spaceships about to leave the planet.

In the morning and evening, a thick blanket of mist only adds to the effect.  There is nothing, and will never be anything like it.  Bagan is one of the gems that make going to Myanmar a life changing experience.  Take a look and decide for yourself!
