The day we visited Shwe Inn Tain Pagoda complex (which will be coming up shortly in a future post) we also visited the Shwe Inn Tain Monastery and a small market. On our way to the pagoda complex, we walked through some of the villages in the area.
Our group stopped in at a local home, but I, and a number of others didn’t like to go in. It simply felt to instrusive to wander into someone’s home. Its not a zoo.
It was during the weekday so most of the children were at school, and you can read about that here and see the photos of the children.
Smaller children were at home, so we met a couple along the way. Most of the villages seemed fairly empty, as most likely the people were going about their daily business – likely at the market or tending their fields.
