Golden Rock

Golden Rock

One of the more interesting places we visited while in Myanmar (Burma) was the Golden Rock. The Kyaiktiyo Pagoda rests on top of a granite boulder roughly 7.5 meters in height with a 15 meters circumference thought to be held in place by a hair of the Buddha. The boulder itself has been covered by gold leave applied by Buddhist pilgrims over the years and gleams with a golden glow regardless of the weather conditions.

The sight of orchids at thirty-eight thousand feetSomewhere during the flight, as our plane was making a line towards the Russian coast line and the Kamchatka peninsula, the sudden recognition of freshly cut purple and white orchids in between our seats appeared as if to remind us of the journey that lay ahead.
