Moved forward the passage, I came to an area, where many shops selling foodstuffs. Although many foreign tourists started to travel to Myanmar, the Thanlyin Myo Ma Market was untouristy. No souvenir shops were seen in this local market. The everyday things and foodstuffs were sold here. And local people came to buy. Even though I walked around, nobody talked to me to buy some souvenir. I was just an observer.
In the meantime, I found a young woman who was dressed in purple. Some trays were placed in front of her. And many cooked chestnuts were piled up on the trays. She was a chestnut seller. I thought the chestnuts were cultivated in a cold place. Yet there might be a production area near this town. When I focused on her, she started to smile cheerfully.
