the golden land….

the golden land… that’s what they call myanmar.

it is most likely referring to the pagodas, temples, statues and palaces gleaming in the deepest gold, scattered over the landscape like glistening freckles. this color of all colors might be accosted with decadence, superficiality, and material luxury….. but these words could not be further from what i experienced during my first from (hopefully) many visits to this treasurous country. the purest form of humble beauty, that i found in the luscious nature, tasted in every dish, and saw in the genuine smiles…… that is what makes this land golden.IMG_3401
