Moved forward the dim passage in the market by the Bago river. Because the place I walked was not a perishable food section, the calmness wafted there. The staffs in the stores worked in a leisurely manner. The woman in this photo was one of that kind of persons. She sat in her small shop with her son. And she started to straighten up her back when she found me.
A bindi was seen between her eyebrows. Although some people wore a bindi as a fashion in India, it had a high probability of a sign of Hinduist when Burmese people wore it. It is said that 0.5% of the population is Hinduist in Myanmar. There might be also a Hindu temple in Bago although I could find during walking around.
When I held my camera, the mother who wore clothes with lace ruffled collar smiled. And her son also looked at my camera with his eyes wide open on the other side of her.
