I decided to spend a final day in Bagan since there were still areas full of temples that I had not yet visited. After breakfast I cycled away from Nyaung U armed with my guidebook and a bottle of water. This time I headed out in the direction of some of the more remote temples.

There were many thorns on the trail waiting to ambush my well-worn bicycle tires (one of which eventually suffered the indignity of another puncture). Otherwise it was a pleasant day. Some of the temples were completely deserted, except for the occasional security guard or small group of local artisans displaying their wares. Near the end of the afternoon I crossed paths with a goat herder shepherding her crew along the trail.
