The next person I encountered while wandering around the village of Thanlyin was the boy in the photo. As I was walking down the alley, my eyes met the boy leaning out of the window of a house. The boy, who was looking out the window, did not do anything, but when he saw me, he started staring at me and gave me a quizzical look. He was probably wondering why a foreigner with a camera was walking through a nameless village. But the answer is hard to find. I had no particular reason for coming here.
Upon closer inspection, the windows of the houses are covered with plastic sheets. The walls are bare of bricks. The house seems to be still under construction. Despite this, the boy is still inside the house. Perhaps the boy's family has started to live in the house that is still under construction. Myanmar is a warm tropical country, so as long as the rain does not come in, it is not cold and there is no inconvenience without window glass.
