Shwe Kyir Myanmar Page12

Location: Shwe Kyir, Myanmar

The daily life of people in a remote village; the village is in two parts, the old and the new The old is washed away and rebuilt every year

The locals were given the remainder of our meals, eg bread, sweets, cakes, biscuits. The joy on the faces of the children at receiving a piece of leftover bread was indescribable and very moving

The children wait to welcome us on the shore. Very soon it was the whole village, all in their best clothes with their faces painted with the traditional thanaka mud!

Making noodles

The main street of the old part of the village built on top of a dyke. Every year this is washed away.

The corn on the cob factory

Betal nuts

In the new part of the village now, away from the dyke, this area never floods. Here are found the school and administrative buildings. Out side the school are photos of the students to advertise their schooling.

And everywhere the collection of alms

Old methods of transport

The pub.

The peanut production, separating the nut from the husk by using a fan; the misshapen nut is made into oil; the perfect nut is bagged for selling; the husk is sent to insulate ice Nothing is wasted.

And the new
