1408. Myanmar Travel: 13 monks crossing the river



From July 3 to July 7, 2014, I was in Yangon presenting two talks to the Myanmar Veterinary Association members. I stayed 3 nights in the Royal Golden View Hotel, North Dagon. This hotel has a beautiful view of the Ngamoeyeik Creek from the roof top.

Around 8 am, I saw monks crossing the river on a Sunday and Monday. I took images of one such scene.

The 3rd image reminds me of "Eight Immortals Crossing The River" in Chinese mythology. Are there 13 monks crossing the creek?

Construction workers come early at around 8 am to start work on building a retaining wall to prevent overflow of water from the Ngamoeyeik Creek into the grounds of the Royal Golden View Hotel.
