Bashful Young Woman In Market

Bashful young woman

The young woman sorted the leaves of cigar

Passing by the stores selling fishnets, I came to the edge of the corridor. There was a shop and some women worked together. Many brown leaves were scattered on the ground. They were material for the cigar called Cheroot.

The local people seemed to prefer the cigar much more than the cigarette. Maybe the reason was that the cigar was cheaper than the cigarette. The local cigar was sold everywhere in the city. Yet this was the first time to see a store selling the material.

The women sorted the leaves with a practiced hand. This shop sold only the leaves and they were rolled up into a cigar in other places. The young woman in this photo was one of the staffs of the shop. She wore cute floriated clothes. When I held my camera, she smiled bashfully.
