Now that's a much better use for gold than keeping it in a vault. Beautiful shot.

Julie and I recently visited Thailand and Cambodia for the first time, and that experience intensified our desire to visit Myanmar.

In last year's US Presidential campaign, a news reporter questioned the Romney campaign about the working conditions in the textile factories where the campaign's t-shirts were made in Burma. The campaign spokesperson replied that their t-shirts were not made in Burma. They were made in Myanmar.

With staff like that, no wonder he lost.

The day I visited this temple was a festival day which made my visit all the more special. Lovely memories.
