Almost arrived at my hotel. What I had to do in Yangon from this time was to check out my room and head for the airport. Heading for the entrance of my hotel, I caught the eye of a man. He was seated at a table that was placed on the edge of the sidewalk. An old sewing machine was attached to the table. He was a sewer and waited for customers to come to his shop.

During staying in Yangon, I passed by his shop every day because his shop was just a few doors down from my hotel. And I saw him every time. However, he was always busy. He seemed to be a well-regarded sewer. So this was the first time I saw him idling.

When I held my camera, he looked back at me calmly. Watching his face, I realized that it's almost the end of my journey.
