New Bagan, Myanmar (Burma)
Lightning crashes and thunder booms in the ancient structure. This is a storm of Biblical proportions—though the setting is nothing of the sort. Holed up inside a roughly 1,000-year-old Buddhist temple, anxious about nightfall, but not about to...

Mrauk-U, Myanmar (Burma)

Yangon, Myanmar (Burma)
While visiting Burma’s most sacred temple, Shwedagon Pagoda in the center of the capital Yangon we came upon this broom brigade – a line of over twenty women all sweeping away the dust from the marble floor circling the glittering temple.
