It was late afternoon as I wandered around. School classes seemed to have ended, and here and there I could see children playing in the center of town. Smartphones are quite popular in Myanmar, and I see people staring at their screens around town, but portable game consoles are still not common. Children are nowhere to be seen walking around with game consoles. Here, children generally play outside, just as they did in the past.
The three boys in the photo were spending their time idly by the side of the road. Unlike most children, these boys were not very active. They were chatting on the side of the road, just like the adults. They might have been having a meeting to start a new activity.
When I stopped in front of them, the boys looked at me with a hawkish attitude. The boys at either end were smiling. The boy in the middle, when he saw the camera, leaned over and made a peace sign.
