Brian and the thousands of temples of Bagan, Myanmar — June 15, 2004

For me, the greatest pleasures about Bagan were getting up at dawn, biking to and around the 4,000 or so temples, and then picking some at random to respectfully climb and witness what breathtaking and majestic views unfolded. Most guesthouses should have bike rentals. I hope to return someday.
