I was walking down a crowded street in central Yangon. As I was walking among the crowds, I saw a group of Buddhist nuns walking toward me from the other side of the street. They all had shaved heads and were wearing bright robes. They stood out even in the crowd.

They were walking at a brisk pace, paying no attention to the stores, stalls, or people lining the street. From their appearance, I assumed that they had come to the center of town to buy something, just like everyone else. In fact, the leading nun seemed to have bought something and was walking with a plastic bag in her hand. But upon closer inspection, I found that each of them was carrying a alms bowl under their arm. They seem to be walking around the downtown area, but they are ready to start begging for alms at any time.

Even so, the Buddhist nuns did not show any signs of starting begging for alms in the crowd. It seems that they do not intend to beg for alms here. This might not be the territory for them to beg for alms. While I was thinking about this, the Buddhist nuns passed by my side and walked away.
