Tea time in the monastery - Shan state, Myanmar (Burma)

More: The jungle murmurs


What is better than having a tea after a big day of trekking? Even better when it is a beautiful little girl who is bringing in the ray on the sunset.


In the monastery where we were staying, the courtyard was full of children (and monks of course). After having set our couches and taken our (cold -freezing) shower this beautiful little girl bring us some tea to enjoy the last ray of their golden sun.

This little girl was serving the tea to all the trekkers who were arriving to spend the night in the monastery. She was living in the villages around, but still was helping with the daily duties of the life of the monastery.


This little girl was not shy at all and she was keen on posing for pictures. But this pictures is not posed and it gives it this particular ambiance.
