This picture was taken at Botataung Paya in Yangon. The pool the monk is looking at is full of turtles - a good reminder of Buddhist practice as they never rush, not even when people buy turtle food from the vendor and dump it in the pool. The turtles were a welcome relief from the huge selection of Buddha images ... Do I sound jaded? In this one regard, perhaps.
