A man handed over a big bag to a woman

Headed for the south again also on this day. The destination was Thanlyin. It was closer than Kyauktan, where I visited two days ago, from Yangon. I hired a taxi and it went along in high gear. Thanlyin was one of the places where I visited 8 years ago. While confirming my location with my smartphone, I was lazy and relax on the seat. I realized the times have changed indeed. I could confirm my location whenever I wanted. And I knew my taxi passing over the destination. Veer around the arterial road, I arrived at Thanlyin.

I got off my taxi in front of the market called Thanlyin Myo Ma Market. The market seemed not to make a bit of difference in 8 years. The market was crammed full of small shops.

Walking the passage, I found a man standing in the middle of the passage. He was just handing over a big bag to a woman. Yet she had a big box already. She was about to carry two burdens at the same time. When I saw them, I thought they were role-reversal.
