"In the ten days in Myanmar, I can always see the figure of this Myanmar mother river. Whether it's in the morning, in the twilight, or in the sun, the river is surging and growing, plentiful on both sides of the strait, nourishing the crops, and at the same time decorating people's lives simple and colorful. Below Sagaing Mountain, the wide channel of the Irrawaddy River provides people with the convenience of boating. The roar of the motor from the heavy cargo ship on the river is endless, and the workers on the construction site on the riverside are working in full swing. All of this indicates the thriving today and tomorrow of this country. Beside the crowded Bhopaya Pagoda, the Irrawaddy River is proudly welcoming and sending it, because it is the best place to watch the sunset in Bagan. The setting sun painted the river surface into a gorgeous golden color, and people sat on cruise ships or stood on small hills to enjoy this natural beauty. This kind of golden light and humming of voices definitely won't make people feel sad. By the small village of Bagan, the Irrawaddy River flows quietly. In the twilight, people take a bath in the river with no distraction, splashing water on each other from time to time, and humming a few songs that I don't understand. Such happiness is something I haven't experienced in a long time. Perhaps someone would say that Burmese people are so poor that they can’t take a bath at home. Yes, materially, they are poor; but the scene before me makes me believe that their spirit is richer than us! The more I travel, the more I see that the nouns in the books turn into living objects and appear before my eyes. This is a kind of surprise, a kind of happiness, and an opportunity to correct my subjectivity. As the male god Jiang Xun said, travel is not only an extroverted observation, but also an introverted reflection. The more you travel, the more you discover your ignorance. It is for the truth too!"
