Man Setting Out Betel Leaves

The man set out the betel leaves in the basket

Shot at Thanlyin Myo Ma Market in Thanlyin, Myanmar.

There was a shop selling Kun next to the greengroceries. Many betel leaves were displayed in the storefront, as expected it was opened in the market. Many baskets were placed and the betel leaves were piled up in every basket.

People in Myanmar preferred to chew this leaf with areca nut. It was called Kun here and it was identical to what was called Paan in India. At any rate, it was a popular article of taste and it was common to be sold in everywhere in this country. This shop was one of the abundant shops. The man in this photo was a shopkeeper and laid over the leaves neatly.

Although I saw many shops selling Kun, I have never tried it. The leaves were solid-looking. Especially, its leaf stem didn't look delicious.
