The face of the young man looked camouflage-printed

Shot in Central Yangon, Myanmar.

I met a young man who was wearing a LEVI'S cap. Apparently, he was a descendant of Indian immigrants. This country was a part of the British Raj until 1937. So it was not rare to meet persons like him.

But the most shocking fact was that some whiteness was seen on his face. Thanaka, a kind of a sun protect, was painted on his face. Yet it was thin on his face. So I worried his face became dappled when it got a tan.
