Amarapura U Bein is the longest teak bridge in the world. This is a beautiful spot to take a pause and watch the world go by. It reminds me of Shakespeare’s poem “All the word’s a stage. And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances.” Captured before sunset, observe two friends having a conversation after work, or an elegant lady with a scarf meeting the gentleman with a hat. Makes you wonder about their stories. Amarapura comes from Pali, an old language used in Buddhist scripture and thought in the monasteries today. It means “City of Immortality.”

Location: Mandalay, Myanmar
