Shot in Dalah, Myanmar.

Leaving the small village, I was moving while sitting on the seat of a pedicab. The street I moved was wide and I could see shops in spots. Sometimes, I asked the driver for stopping the vehicle to take photos. This time, I also asked him for stopping because I found some Buddhist nuns walking the street.

The major religion in Myanmar was Theravada Buddhism. So it was not uncommon to become a priest for both men and women here. Besides, to become a priest was officially admitted to women in this country, unlike in Thailand. I saw nuns along with monks during walking around the city. All of them had close-cropped hair and it was difficult to estimate whether the person was male or female by seeing their faces. Yet what they wore was depended on the sex. The monks wore a brown Kasaya and the nuns wore a pink Kasaya in this country. The person who became a priest in this photo wore a pink Kasaya. So she was a nun.
