I arrived in Mandalay after a 10 hours bus night ride from Inle Lake, also if it was just 5 in the morning the bus station was crowded.
The main first notable difference from Yangon was the thousands of motorbike all around horning and beeping all the time coming in every direction. The city is a complete polluted chaotic mess that only Burmese can manage.
Here you can see how they make thousands of marble statue of Buddah.

I quite like shot 3 here and I'd likely burn down the top left by a good 25-35% or more if it were mine.

I really like how your photos tell so much about lifestyles in other parts of our world so well. A great set altogether here. Thank you for sharing.

Once again, a really interesting set. I love the way you have captured the peoples hands with the detail of the carved hands in shot 2. Likewise in shot 3 the person contrasting with the statues works for me
