Book Repairman In Yangon

Book repairman in Yangon

Some tools for repairing books were seen on the table

Shot in the city of Yangon, Myanmar.

After wandering about the town of Kyauktan, I came back to Yangon. Different from Kyauktan, Yangon is a big city. Many buildings stood and many automobiles ran the streets. My taxi driver couldn't speak English and I couldn't Burmese, neither. I couldn't tell exactly where my hotel was. So I got off the taxi near the Sule Pagoda, which was one of the landmarks in this city. It didn't take a long time for the hotel.

Walking the street, I found some bookstores. I stepped inside one of the stores. Many books written in Burmese were displayed and some English books were also sold. Compared to before, it became uncommon to see people who read books in the streets. Yet there were still bookworms here.

The man in this photo was a street vendor and also turned over books. He was a book repairman. His tools were seen on the table.
