Photographer's Note

U Bein is a teak bridge stretching close to 1200 meters across Taungthaman Lake just on the southern outskirts of Mandalay. And what a variety of folks stream past in both directions around dusk. Monks, children, nuns, and your average young man, but in this case in the very "Burmese Longyi". It seemed to me that a good 80% of the males in Burma wear the Longyi. The young man on the right is also wearing powder or "Thanaka", which is almost universally worn by the women but also by some boys and some of the young men. For a larger view: Click Me
