A few more pictures from my early days in Yangon; like in Hanoi, so much of life here happens out on the street.

      That’s thanaka, it’s a paste made from, I think, tree bark. People here wear it as a natural sunscreen, and just for decoration.

        Jon, thank you for that information. If I played trivia games it would be a great challenge. I wonder if it would be allowed in Scrabble? Have a great day.
