In Yangon, I turned off the main street and took a side street. Buildings lined both sides of the road and cars were parked in front of them. As I weaved my way between the parked cars, I spotted a couple of nuns. Two young Buddhist nuns were walking with alms bowls in their hands.

They seemed to be visiting the buildings on this road one by one. Not much time passed before I saw the nuns again, which made me wonder if all the nuns in Yangon were begging for alms. Anyway, the people of Yangon, including the residents of this street, are very pious. The two nuns were giving alms one after the other. The custom of giving alms is deeply rooted in the society.

As they were doing so, the older nun stopped abruptly. She looked into a bowl, took out bills, and held them in her hand. It was as if he was a businessman checking the day's sales.
