CARNET DE VOYAGE DE JEAN DUMOULIN:
In 2017, one of my connections in Bagan took me to an intermediary entrusted by the monks to sell objects to enable the renovation and operation of the monastery. It was a difficult decision but I overpaid the objects in order to keep clear conscience, a decision made easier by the fact there were no Buddha statues...
