Myanmar 2011

I headed out to Burma last month. I figured on the full 28 days. Would of hated to go for 2 weeks and find out i wished i stayed longer. Anyhow, after arriving in Yangoon at 10pm, i headed out looking for food.

My 1st taste of Burmese Indian Muslim grub


In the morning it was more local food before heading out with a crisp $5 in hand to see the mother of all Burmese temples.


Nope, i didnt eat them. But why on earth feed these pests?


Shewdagon Pagoda


If the pic below looks a bit off, it was a vertical panoramic shot with my new camera








Shewdagon in the distance




Its said there is 60 tones of gold covering Shewdagon Pagoda

Bottom one seems better... or just use a service like Picasa Web Albums that deals with sizing automatically, and post a link to it.

Went to Chaukhtatgyi Pagoda to see this red soled reclining Buddha. Built in 1907, its 72 metres in length.

As it was New year with water, and all transport is shut down for 5 days, i opted going to Mandalay on a poxy night bus. Fecking karaoke. Arrived at 6am and after having 5 hours kip, i went on a tour to see the surrounding sites and fingers crossed, not pay any entrance fee to the government.


Nanyin [leaning tower], Inwa. Its a 90ft watchtower that had a brush with an earthquake in 1838.




Just like i photographed in Thailand, this walkway is held up the same way. i pretty much giggled with myself when i showed some tourists what they were walking on. LOL, i'm a bastard




same run of the mill tourist crap.


Some overgrown swimming baths in the area


Front gates to Maha Aungmye Bonzan. Built in 1822.


A brick monastery that's had a lovely coat of paint on the front


And been completely forgotten about on the back. [Just as well it was free to enter]


Inside the Monastery. There is 3 inner chambers with corridors , the central chamber is locked.


Side gate.




Buddha looks different than most


They use horse and cart in this neck of the woods


Kids all ready to throw water till a woman said the word camera in English and the boys just soaked my legs instead. They aren't to know my camera is waterproof and i didnt want to tell them so in case they think all cameras are waterproof

U Bein's Bridge, Amarapura. Its 1300yd's. Still looks in good nick after 200 years.










Having a tasty Myanmar beer in the water






Had a day in the countryside.






This girl comes running out of her home with a silver bowl and water to drown me. But i got to her 1st.




My muslim bike driver having a kip. Thank god he wasn't drinking or it be a long bloody walk back


Yadana Labamuni Hsu-taungpye Paya [Snake Pagoda]


3 giant pythons get a daily bath and 'breakfast' and 11am.




Getting out


And now for 'breakfast'. surely a bloody chicken would be better than coloured water.


Then back up to its bed

Roads are bloody awful here and only just wide enough for one way traffic


My bike drivers brother lives out this way and he showed me this. i was basically told to photograph this, but still to this day i had no idea why he's draped in a Pakistani flag in Myanmar




walked down the path to the right of the pic, into an area with a few muslims houses till i exited and myself in Buddhist country again?




The little figure on the corner.




Caught the attention of some big man with a walkie talkie. Crap. back to the village i go. Apprently he was the 'headmaster'. Still i sat down and had some sugar cane and caught the attention of some kids


On the way back to Mandalay i saw this.




Got a soaking


Some noisy float thing outside my hotel. A little bit of dancing and donation. If you're asking about nightlife in Mandalay, i didnt find any. City closes down at 9pm


More soaking the next day.




The biggest pile of rubble that people go and see. Mingun Paya. Was built in 1790 and was meant to be 500ft high. 3 times its size now. Work stopped in 1819 and an earthquake split it in 1838


Why? i see it all over Asia yet no one has explained to me why sticking incense between bricks helps.


I noticed the brick piling like this in Korea


Up top


Structure is all cracked down the the floor, but this square thing isnt. Built to last


Down at its base

Mingun Bell. This was meant to be put inside Mingun Paya, when it was finished. Anyway, it weighs 90 tonnes


Inside the bell


Hsinbyume Paya, Built in 1816




Thought it was time for me to at least enjoy New Year with the locals after seeing some of the sights. Back to Mandalay Lake




Did i see lots of 'punks' with black makeup on their face? yes, too many. But not here at the lake. Makeup will come off. SO you have this dude instead.








90 mins later and 2 medium bottles of whiskey later, i was in the crowd.




Note the razor sharp Military wire above the heads? There's more at ground level. Thats one way to keep back the crowds!!!


Mandalay palace moat. Didn't venture inside as 1, it costs $10 to enter [combo ticket], and 2, forced labour on the wooden roofs facing the water. Note this was after the Thingyan




At 3am in the morning, with 3 hours kip, i went to Hsipaw. Had a bare bones seat for 12 hrs.


I went by train for one reason only, to see the Gokteik Viaduct. Idea by the British, contractors by the Pennsylvania steel company. Built in 1901. Taking pics of the bridge is banned for "security reasons". 318 ft high and 2257 ft across. It was the 2nd highest railway bridge in the world when it was constructed. Survived the next 100 years without maintenance.


The gorge below

For a crackle, look at the Brand name on his bag. Tribal people my arse Barbra!


Found "Little Bagan"




Bamboo Buddha, Maha Nanda Kantha. 150 years old lacquered Buddha made from bamboo strips.


At least the Burmese can build a wall without it falling down. Philippines, take note


Veg growing on Shan farmland






Shan village


Waterwheel to make electricity


Chinese graves facing Hsipaw


And this Expired? LOL


Least it all in one place i guess.....


My buddy. seen more wildlife in Burma than i've ever seen. That includes an elephant in a field on the Mandalay - Hsipaw train. Thought i was hearing things cos i was drunk.


Can't remember waterfall name


LOL, who chipped of the tits?


Nice home

Left Hispaw for Mandalay by bus. But we had a bit of a problem

Random pics of Mandalay before my 16 hrs slow boat to Bagan.

Betel preparation making




The drums are for sugar cane resin


Banana leaf


As someone already mentioned in their own topic from 09, "miserable fuckers" isnt far from the truth. And i was in a trikshaw. So it a capture the moment thing.




Its what what you think it is


Boat trip to Bagan, Sagaing hill. [home to 500 stupas dotting the hills, with over 6000 monks and nuns]










The locals were having a field day with his hair. Always looking at it. Even had someone film it from his back!

Yea, and that including Monks chewing and spiting blood red betel juice on the floor

Bagan. Can't remember all the names of the temples. Mainly the bigger ones are more important than the smaller ones. And stupas are just stupas.












Some paintings behind protective glass




One of the restored temples. Now you can just imagine what they would of looked like in the 7th Century














some window arches and doorways. Noticing how they made the curve,




Ananda Temple, built in 1091


Buddha's arms face down at his sides with hands outstretched, a mudra [hand position] unknown to traditional Buddhist sculpture outside of this temple




had a quick snack around the back of the temple. Saw this


And this is tea leaf if you're wondering


Ananda Oakkyaung Monastery


There are many sand painters that make their living tracing the imagines from the real paintings on the wall. No doubt fucking them up in the process


Old palace wall


Ngakywenadaung pagoda is the bowel shaped one


Thatbyinnyu Pahto










One thats been built below ground


Mahabodhi Paya. Modelled after the famous Mahabodhi temple in India. Built in 1215.


Closer shot without the water channel


Sides are covered in little Buddha images

Odd shaped photo, but thank the bloody trees and brick wall for that




Some 10th century paintings






Nan paya. Looks very 'Ankor style' inside. sadly you cant take pics of the fucking stone. wished i battered the old woman inside for denying me my wish.




These kids came running out of their grass hut. Must of surprised them


Pebingyaung Paya






Dhammayazika Paya. dates from 1196










On the grounds of a Nun Monastery


Huge archway
