In Pyay, the houses on the outskirts of town were all built on stilts. This is to cope with the hot and humid climate. Interestingly, the space under the floor is used as a living room for the residents. As I walked through the rows of houses on stilts, I saw people relaxing under the floors of many of them.

A young mother and her young son were relaxing under the floor of a house I passed by. They were relaxing together. They were both wearing Thanaka on their faces. It seems that people apply Thanaka even when they are at home.
