It was not the best season to travel, September 2011, heavy rain. I am not good shooting videos. Just my photographs, Nikon D60. But I just want to share this navigation with you. Traveling by boat in South East Asia is so beautiful ! The last photograph looks very strange ... Is the Bya LA a pali word which means 'Unique Power'- This name is given to a mythical animal of Rakhine artisans which has been used for centuries as a decorative motif in building and pagodas. The Bya La in the photograph can be seen inside the Shittaung Temple in Mrauk U built in 1535. It is a combination of nine different creatures of land and water and this auspicious symbol brings fortune, peace and tranquility. The people in the Rakhine State need it now.
