The woman sold Kun under the eaves

I was not the only person those who were under the eaves of the market. Because it eased off, no one hid from the rain there. Instead, a woman took a table placed under the eaves. Many betel leaves were seen on it. And the pieces of Areca nut were also seen on the far side. Unlike me, she sat by the roadside not to watch the traffic. She sold Kun there. The table was her small shop.

Watching her, a man came to her and she got an order. I saw many female Kun sellers in Myanmar. In contrast, most of those who came to buy seemed to be men. It might be thought to be disgraceful to buy Kun for women. Anyway, the woman in this photo picked a leaf up. And she started to roll up the leaf with a bank expression.
