On our way back from Golden Rock we explored the city of Bago - the Pagodas, the Royal Palace, and everything in between.
...but before we reached Bago we stopped off at a local Pamelo Farm where farmers were growing and harvesting large grapefruit like fruits - which by the way were super yummy and beautiful in color! We also made a pit stop into a local village situated on the side of the river where we wandered over a rickety bamboo bridge to join in on village life. Many of the villagers were mingling about over conversation and the sale of piles and piles of small dried fish.
After several other small detours we reached the city of Bago, about an hour outside of Yangon, for an afternoon of exploration! From golden stupas to larger than life buddha sculptures, and stunning royal architecture we took in many sights over the course of several hours. Before heading back to Yangon we stopped for our first truly local lunch experience - half of which we didn't know quite what we were consuming!
