Sunset watchers gathering at the Thabeik Hmauk Temple at sunset, Bagan, Myanmar
At every religious site in Myanmar, it is necessary to remove all footwear prior to entering. You can see the pile of shoes on the steps in this image. I found walking on the TEN centuries of filth of the ancient floors more than a little off-putting, imagining all the potential diseases I might pick up from the bird droppings, and worse. But 'when in Rome'! How we suffer for our art LOL. We wiped our feet afterwards with antiseptic towels, and I appeared to have survived with no after effects.
