Betel Leaves And Smartphone

Kun seller working while calling on phone

The Kun seller worked busily while calling on the phone

Shot in the city of Yangon, Myanmar.

Walking a street, I found a Kun seller again. Kun called Paan in India is widely popular in Myanmar. And men and woman like it. Watching him, the customers came from one moment to the next. It is said that Kun is severely dependent. The locals in Yangon seemed to prefer to chew it much more than cigarettes. The number of Kun sellers was much larger than the number of cigarette sellers. So I thought there were many Kun addicts in this city.

Some betel leaves were placed on the table and he drizzled chalk powder solution on them with a pole. In the meantime, he got called. However, while he called on the phone, he kept drizzling.

I saw many Kun sold in this city. And those all looked the same to me. Yet the tastes of Kun might be different from each seller because they were made by hand. One theory holds that the liquid solution makes a difference from one seller to the next.
