Breakfast in Burma

Burma, same monastery. The monks lined up in a very long queue for breakfast, all of the monks except the ones who prepared the food. Further down this line you could give the holy men and boys whatever you felt, that be food, pens, cakes etc. But their main course this morning was a very nice smelling curry which matched their clothes. The small boy stood out in the line. They all looked so serious - maybe because they were going to have curry again? The aesthetic way they dress, the color, the bowl for collecting food, the shaven heads, everything falls into place.
