Shot at Shwedagon Pagoda, a Buddhist temple in Yangon, Myanmar.
It was prohibited to enter the precinct with any shoes on here. Everybody who came here to pray walked without any footwear. Yet the ground was very hot because of the strong sun. I had a rough time of walking around the precinct. On the other hand, the locals walked with a straight face. I thought the thickness of their volar skin was much thicker than me.
During strolling about the vast precinct, I found some Buddhist monks walking. Like other locals, they walked as if nothing had happened. They passed by me at a brisk pace. The pagoda was shining brilliantly under the sun on the other side of them.
