Of Nuns and Monks

Myanmar monks

“Solo” / Bokpyin, Thaninthayi, Myanmar / September 2016

A young monk stands on the balcony of an old monastery in Bokpyin, Thaninthayi Region in Myanmar.  The pair of clay jars with cups on them contains fresh water and can be found not only in monasteries but also along the roads and in most public places in Myanmar.   The clay jar helps keep the water temperature cool.  Any thirsty friend or stranger can help himself with a drink from these jars.
