Hello Ronny,

This is a very heart warming story, revealing joint trust and friendship between you and this delightful family.

I wonder, had the children ever seen a tablet before? They seem totally engrossed in it but, then, most children of that age would also be fascinated!

Your photographs, though relatively personal, are well worth sharing on TE, for they show details of a Myanmar family, their dress and home.
Your photographs are sharp, and colourful, though the lighting was probably not bright.
Along with your notes, this is a very interesting series.

I once visited poor, village schools in Pakistan and though we took pens and pencils, erasers and felt-tipped pens, in abundance, as well as coloured paper and exercise books, we still collected lots of books (on our return) and posted them to the schools, for the conditions were quite Dickensian!

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Default To Royaldevon: fish


I guess the man with the fish wasn't a representation of the bread-winner, because in soviet society most of the women worked a lot too and the children were let in schools.. maybe it was only showing the capacity of the workman even in holidays.. yes, the sadness in his eyes is a curious aspect.

take care
