Lucy in the Stupa with Diamonds

Lucy in the Stupa with Diamonds

I spent the majority of time in Yangon sick in bed but before the bug attacked we had a chance to wander through the characterful streets of what was formerly known as Rangoon. image

Colonial architecture surrounds the central area of town


We visited the famous Shwedagon Stupa which was pretty impressive. My favourite fact was that at the very top of the stupa is a 76 carat (15g) diamond and if you stand on a certain line on the stupa platform you can see each colour from the spectrum shine through. Furthest away you see red, then as you step towards the stupa the diamond shines yellow, blue then green.
