Shot in Central Yangon, Myanmar.
The man in this photo was playing chess with his friends by the wayside. Keeping sitting cross-legged, he was making a move with a serious look. Some pieces in hand were put in front of him. So he seemed to gain an advantage. Somehow he's bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.
Although there were many Chinese settlements in Yangon, I didn't see any men playing Xiangqi, Chinese chess. Maybe the situation was formed as a result of British rule.
