I soared back to the trashy residential area near the Oak Pho Su Station in Thanlyin. I walked down an alley that stretched between dwellings on stilts. The air is quiet, and no one is in a hurry to get to the next destination. I am clearly an outsider here. But the locals do not look at me quizzically when they see me. They just looked at me curiously.
As I continued on deeper and deeper into the alley, I met the locals again. An old woman and a man were standing there. I couldn't tell if they were mother and son or not, but they were both wearing the same purple T-shirt. They had different reactions when they saw me. The man seemed to have no interest in me or the camera. He took one look at me and blew a cigarette while looking at the ground in a bored manner. On the other hand, the old woman seemed to be interested in me, turning around and laughing out loud.
