Myanmar Field Trip Part 4: Pagoda

Good morning! This is Yi-Chia Chang in Bago, Myanmar.

Day 4 is equipment preparation day! We will have gauge maintenance and training session for gauge installation tomorrow. After the equipment preparation, I have a free half day to go on a tour around Bago. Therefore, I visit some great places, such as famous pagoda and reclining Buddha.

The following picture shows Ralph san prepared the equipment and software testing all day in his room. Please forgive his little messy room. 

The box containing electronic devices is the most complicated part of gauge station. We will install all components in Tarwa and Zaung Tu in Bago.

This is the weather sensor, which could detect temperature, humidity, wind speed, and other atmospheric parameter values.

Fun facts: The yellow decoration that Myanmar locals put on their face is called “Thanaka”. It is the element from trees and mostly looks yellow. It's said that it can protect skins from sunlight and be used as cosmetic.
