September 29, 2012. During my travels to over one hundred countries, I had visited the Shwedagon Pagoda in 2001 at sunset and it has always been one of my favorite and most memorable places. George and I met online and married partially due to the Shwedagon Pagoda. I could not believe I was back in Myanmar, under the Bodhi tree making a wish with my one true love.
It is a startling and stunning site. I recommend you visit especially for sunset, the evening colors and if possible at near full moon as we did. We wandered together, spoke with a monk and did an interview about how we met!
