Young Woman Selling Dried Shrimps

Young woman selling dried shrimps

Various kinds of dried shrimp were displayed in front of the young woman

Shot in the city of Yangon, Myanmar.

Walking in crowds, I came to a grocery store. A young woman wearing a red shirt worked there. Thanaka was painted on her cheeks like others and many bags were placed in front of her. Every bag was filled with small objects. They were dried shrimps. Because they were arranged by type, they seemed to vary in quality. In fact, the amount of money written on the price tags were different. At any rate, it was an everyday foodstuff here.

Like Thai cuisine, it was common to use dried shrimps to cook Burmese cuisine. Thailand is the neighboring country. The cuisines are similar but different. The fish sauce is used in both countries. Yet the Burmese cuisine is much greasy. It might be an influence of another neighboring country.
