Boy Selling Coconuts

Boy selling coconuts

A pile of coconuts was placed in front of the boy

Shot at Kyauktan Township in Yangon, Myanmar.

Unfortunately, it was drizzling on that day. Because of the weather, not many worshippers came to the famous Buddhist temple built in the river called Ye Le Pagoda. The staffs working the souvenir shops near the temple seemed not to be busy. The boy in this photo also had nothing to do and just sat beside the wagon placed by the roadside. The coconuts were piled up in front of him. He was a coconuts seller. When I held my camera, he stared at my gear.

What was sold in these shops near a tourist attraction was very similar everywhere in the world. Beverages, snacks, and clothes were common items. The store on the other side of the boy also sold clothes and the beverages were displayed next to his table. I always wondered what kind of people bought the clothes in the tourist destination. However, the stores sold the clothes because someone bought them.

By the way, the store in this photo seemed not to sell a T-shirt with 'I love Kyauktan' written on it.
