Football Tournament

I learned from a local that this pagoda's annual festival, in a small village around Bagan, was culminating with the final round of the month-long football tournament. I showed up early and got front row seats, making friends with locals. I was the only white person among hundreds of people (I live for these types of experiences).

You should have seen the locals faces when I stood up to stretch my legs, and being a head taller than anybody else, everyone noticed me for the first time!
