At The Shwedagon Pagoda

The Buddha supposedly dropped by to visit here 600 years ago.  Bunches of rich Burmese, mostly ruler types, have donated tons of gold to cover and re-cover the largest stupa around.  Because as we all know, that is the best way to spend a nation’s treasure.  This is just one of dozens of little shrines surrounding the big one.  Also, I poured water on the Buddha’s head at the Tuesday Corner, whatever that is.
