We learned that most everything in the nation is free for citizens but foreigners have to pay. Dawn just never corrected people who thought she was Burmese. I had to pay $20 to enter Bagan, $8 to enter a temple, $6 to enter the palace, and $50 to go to a play at the palace. Dawn got it all for free. Lol.
When Dawn said to one of the vendors that it's not fair for foreigners to have to pay more, they told her that's just how the world works, and they made reference to how the US has in state and out of state tuition differences.
In Bagan I was able to call my bank about my account having a large amount of money spent in Claremore. They confirmed that the purchase was made while I and my debit card were in Thailand. This comforted me to a certain degree just knowing for sure it wasn't me making big mistake buying something big right before a trip around the world. Now I am just bothered wondering how someone could have done this to me.
With peace of mind that my bank is working on helping me, we ventured out to see the amazing city.
