Postcards from Mandalay, Myanmar

Watermelons on the bank of the Irrawaddy River:  

Traditional Myanmar Bean Sprout Salad — using chickpea flour in the dressing!!!  

Roasted pumpkin with mayo:  

A road where all the stonecutters create marble Buddhas:  

And leave some of the faces for later:  

Covering themselves in marble dust:  

While the monks hang their robes out to dry.  

Shwe Nan Daw Kyaung (Golden Palace Monastery) — an all-teak monastery, which was once completely covered in gold!

And the world’s largest “book” at the Kuthodaw Pagoda — where there stand row upon row of these lovely white pagodas, which each contain a marble tablet of writing (from the Tipitaka, of Theravada Buddhism).
