U Bein's Bridge

At 1.2 Kilometers, U Bein's Bridge is the longest Teak Wood bridge in the world.
It spans Taungthaman Lake (which is named for an ogre who was hunting Buddha).
It is over 200 years old and its age is showing. I was fortunate enough to get
there at about 4:30 AM and walk the bridge before sunrise. I stayed for about
three hours and shot approximately 100 photos.
