Tranquil sunset by the Amarapura U Bein, the longest teak bridge in the world | A reflective moment watching people walk home from work while appreciating the calm water waving gracefully like a glass blanket, inviting us to be grateful for the day | Amarapura comes from Pali, an old language used in Buddhist scripture and still taught in the monasteries today. It means “City of Immortality”
