  Searching for Monday...
by vodolaz

There are eight days of burmese week `cos Wednesday divides on two parts in noon owing to Buddha was born in Wednesday. The little statuettes of Buddha symbolize each week`s day and are situated around the Shwedagon circle. If you were born in Monday , for example , you had to find your statuette of Buddha and pour water on his head , also you can buy some religious souvenires on entrance and then place them to him . Then Buddha give you good luck and happiness. It`s much better to do it if today is the day of week when you were born...

Somewhere in Shwedagon circle again...
It`s too hot in Jan ! Oh my Gods , why they don`t keep cold beer here ?

Address: On Singuttara Hill, East of Kandawgyi lake.
