The young nun took out some bills from her alms bowl

Shot in the city of Yangon, Myanmar.

Getting sidetracked, I walked the street flanked buildings. The cars were parked on both sides of the street. Walking the street, I found nuns again. Two young nuns walked with an alms bowl. They seemed to visit from house to house on this street. Apparently, all the nuns in Yangon started to walk for asking alms at that time because I saw many nuns in spots in a short span of time.

The people were faithful and two nuns could get some money from one after another. The custom to bestow charity took root in this society.

Meanwhile, one of the nuns stopped suddenly. She started to look into her alms bowl made of aluminum. And she took out some bills from the bowl. She seemed to check the yield quantity. I wondered whether she was assigned a quota or not.
