Betel Leaves And Betel Nuts

The man put the betel nuts on the betel leaves

Wondered which is the better way to sell Kun, which is called Paan in India, in Yangon. To peddle or to sell at a stand by the roadside. I saw both types of Kun seller during walking around this city. It could be relatively easy to create repeat customers if when people sell at a stand. On the other stand, It could be easy to reach the customers who could not come to the stand because of the business. It seemed to be hard to figure out the solution.

The man in this photo was the former. He placed a table on the edge of the sidewalk and sell Kun there. Many betel leaves were open on his table. And he was just putting the betel nuts on every leaf. By the way, the white liquid painted on the leaves was the limewater.
