Shwedagon , you`re closer to God

Shwe - it means "golden" in burmese , Dagon - the ancient name of Yangon , the capital of Myanmar , and it means roughly " The End of Strife - don`t be alarmed , don`t be upset , don`t be worry now " . It means if you reach this place you can utterly relax and only the kindness will be around you. And it`s really so , just try to reach Yangon !

And one more - if you for all that reached Yangon , just get a few beer labels for my collection , `cos I collect beer labels from Golden Land...
Spasibo !

    very lovely and fantastic travelpage!!! u'd got a lot of happiness while u're visiting at the shwedagon pagoda, hadn't u?why don't keep cold beer... because we buddhist believe cool beer is one of the avoidences of 5pinsa: do not drinking.
