In 2017 on her visit to Myanmar, Nicola was shown around the Min Nan Thu Village in Bagan by Mr OO her lovely tour guide. Mr OO knows this village well as he donates time and money to the local school. The village houses range from shacks to a brick building. They mostly grow crops such as peanuts, sesame, beans and corn and keep a few pigs and cows. However, some members of the village have other skills which you can find out about on the video.
The Chauk Htat Gyi Pagoda in Yangon, Myanmar is home to a 65 metre long reclining statue of Buddha. The big Buddha has lots of details including gorgeous eyelashes, beautiful robes and symbols on his feet. The Pagoda also houses many other statues and is worth a visit.
I (Nicola) shot this footage at the Kalaywa Tawya Monastery in Yangon, Myanmar in March 2017 (except for that little bit where you see me which was taken by my friend and guide Bo Bo). The monks go out and collect the food all of which is donated and bring it back to eat communally. The monks are in maroon and the nuns in pink.
