Photographer's Note

Most travellers visiting Mandalay, take the cruise along the Irrawady River, and this is a most pleasant voyage. They finally arrive to Mingun where the biggest pagoda of all Myanmar stands unfinished. Not too far from that edifice stands another pagoda called " Hsinbyume " a delithful piece of architecture built in 1816, by Bagyidaw, a king who wanted to built a sanctuary which reminded Mt. Meru, hence the seven rows of waves surrounding the Pagoda. These novice monks were playing there, and I found interesting the contrast they created with their red robes against the white background.
