The bookseller did business on the sidewalk

Shot in the city of Yangon, Myanmar.

Since the popularization of the smartphone, it became uncommon to see people reading books on the streets. Yet the Burmese people could have a tendency to be a book junkie basically.

Walking the city center, I found a stall selling books. Many books were displayed there. Because I am also a bookworm, I become curious about what kind of books are sold when I found a bookstore in foreign countries. However, all the books sold here was written in Burmese. The population of Myanmar was over 50,000,000. So it could make good business sense to sell only books written in Burmese. On the other hand, I couldn't read any book if I bought.

Therefore, I shifted my frame of reference. I started to watch the people who came here to buy. The bookseller was busy. People came one after another during watching.
