    Swedawmyat Paya, Yangon

    One of the more attractive Payas in Yangon is the Swedawmyat Paya on the North side of town. It however, does not contain an actual tooth relic, but rather a replica of a copy of a relic of a tooth of the Buddha... (Say that 10 time real fast...)

    Pye is off the beaten path and honestly I don't recommend it, but I'm glad I went because I saw life under martial law and felt perfectly ill at ease.

    But I would recommend the not off the beaten path Wooden Bridge up in Mandalay. It's quite scenic and chill.

    Hop onto the train (yeah, like the one in the photo below) to Mandalay!

    As a matter of interest, this particular overly-crowded train was indeed heading towards Mandalay. Queuing up to buy train tickets here in Yangon also deserves an entire chapter.... Did you know that the Burmese folks would camp outside the train station 24 hours before the tickets go on sale?!

    Well maybe not super wealth but certainly doing better than most. I didn't notice a whole lot of satelitte tv dishes. There were mostly TV antennaes on the rooftops.

    There are quite a few different religions represented. I was surprised to see so many churches in the country and in Yangon there are a couple of really big churches.
