Photographer's Note

We've watched the monks make their morning rounds for alms, and drunk our tea and eaten our "donut"'. Always in Burmese tea shops a plate of assorted snacks, fresh and otherwise are bought to table, you take what you want and are charged as you leave. The fried batter donuts are always fresh and hot in the morning and are after a couple weeks of travelling "lekker"'.
Anyway as I say we've had our tea and now climb the dijk to where the morning market is held, the green and red shade awnings throw a strange light on the scene, but I do my best.
First stop - the thanaka stall, as most of you know thanaka paste is used to protect the skin from the sun and derives from a tree. Here its displayed, different sizes, different quality. I have to wonder how long a piece would last.- months, years............? I have no idea.
