A woman made Kun by the roadside

Shot in the city of Yangon, Myanmar.

Came to Yangon, the biggest city of Myanmar for the first time in 8 years. It's been a long time. Many things are changed since I visited before. This country was a military-ruled country and Aung San Suu Kyi, the symbol of the democratization of this country was held under house arrest at that time.

When I asked about her in the streets, nobody wanted to speak about it because they were afraid of the secret police. Yet the time passed. Aung San Suu Kyi became a Nobel Peace Prize laureate and a State Counsellor now. Perhaps, many things have been changed.

Yet it was not changed that the locals painted their faces with Thanaka and loved to chew the betel leaves. There were an enormous number of stalls which sold Kun, betel leaves, in the streets. The woman in this photo was one of them.
