The man flattened the dough into a disk

Walking through the night market on Yangon's Strand Road, I noticed many locals walking in the same direction. There must be something up ahead for all these people. I followed the locals. However, the place I arrived at was a small landing place. It's not what I was expecting. Apparently, there is no bridge across the Yangon River in downtown Yangon, so the locals take small wooden boats from this small dock to the other side of the river. Many boats were busily arriving and departing at the wharf.

As in any country, there are people who want to do business in a crowded place, and there were many stalls around the wharf as well as at the night market. The young man in this photo was one of the workers at one of the stalls near the wharf. He put the dough on a flat table and rolled it out one after another in the palm of his hand into a disk. When I asked if I could take a photo, he nodded slightly. But he didn't take a glance at the camera, nor did he stop kneading his hands. He seemed to be busy.
