Photographer's Note

We met that old monk in Bagan after my wife and I spent two hours visiting one of the many monasteries downtown. It was so hot... We stayed something like one hour sleeping on the ground, some different monks were passing by, eating rice, staring at us curiously.

When we got up to leave the place and try to get a carriage to go back to the archeologic side of Bagan, that old monk appeared from nowhere, smiling at us, talking to us very fast in Burmese and insisting so we visit his small place. He showed us any item he could collect in his room, after a while he asked me for a picture. When he asked him his name, he wrote it down we the strangest signs I've ever seen and flew with our only pen left :)

Well, we were a bit bothered but that pen was a small price to pay for this funny moment with him. Well, he's so serious on this picture but I swear he was smiling as hard as he could just a second before I took the picture...
