A trip to Bago - the Kyakhatwine Monastery

We went on a drive from Yangon to Bago, an ancient capital.  One of the places we went to was the Kyakhatwine Monastery, a place where many monks live while studying Buddha's literature. There is a ritual of feeding at lunch time that we observed - interesting but somewhat bizarre as we watched the population of monks parade in and collect rice, other food and donations of things and cash and then go sit down at little round tables.
