Young Nun With Big Eyes

Young nun

I met a young nun

Shot in the city of Yangon, Myanmar.

The major religion in this country is Theravada Buddhism. And it is not unusual to enter the priesthood for the locals. It was common to see such people in the streets. The young woman in the photo was also in a religion. Although she was young, she shaved her head and practiced asceticism everyday. I felt admiration. She might be at playful age.

By the way, the reason why I knew the person was a woman was that she wore a cute pink kasaya.
