Girl at the Cafe

Myanmar Girl

“Girl at the Cafe” / Jessie T. Ponce / Kyaukkyi Township, Myanmar / February 2016

She was minding her baby brother as her parents were attending to early morning customers at their small cafe in downtown Kyaukkyi but quickly agreed to pose for a photo even before I finished my breakfast.  While her physical features apparently took some influence from a South Asian neighbor, she is obviously a Myanmar citizen by heart.   The thanaka on her face tells the story.
