As it was my first day in Yangon and in Myanmar ; i went to the Shwedagon pagoda to get a feel of the real Myanmar. I think i was walking around for just about 10 minutes when i met this wonderful monk. His name is A Shin Revata and we spent the next +/- 2 hours talking about religion and our own lives. A wonderful experience and it immediately set the tone for the rest of my journey through Myanmar. A land of friendly people and smiles. We gave eachothers our emails and continued our own way. And who knows... maybe one day we'll meet again.
