Destination = Bagan Plains, Myanmar
With our last night, it's another sunset skyline of spires, heat and haze: 3000 temples and pagodas built between 11th and 13th century, some say deserted by a Myanmar king.
But around many are the troupes of artisans, traders and mild-mannered touts; inside - the worshipped, the worshippers and monks, crowds of the curious and the seeking.
We've wandered these baking plains with a battered map, from one group of soaring spires to another, over 5-days, lost but not lost; on electric bikes across hot asphalt and sand tracks to the more isolated and lonely, an escape from the heat through darkened doorways to hallowed halls and walls, with the memories and shadows of those from before.
