Nun crossing U Bein teakwood bridge

This 1.2-kilometre bridge in Burma was built around 1850 and is believed to be the oldest and longest teakwood bridge in the world. As there are several Buddhist monasteries on both sides of the bridge, nuns and monks are regularly crossing it to the other side during sunset.
