As we left, after spending a couple of hours wandering around observing ways in which Burmese Buddhists celebrated their faith at Yangon's Schwedagon Pagoda, we happened upon these three young men catching a closs-up glimpse of the seventy-five carat diamond atop the pagoda spire. Later I realized the mural behind them included a figure pointing the way skyward!

Location: Schwedagon Pagoda, Yangon (Rangoon), Myanmar (Burma)
