Asia, Image of the Month

Image of the month

This month’s evocative photo was captured by Tyler Ray in Myanmar, who tells us that he spotted this boy monk of about 9 years old eating breakfast at a tea shop whilst wandering the streets of Nyaung U:  “He has is taking part in a monastic lifestyle for one year as many Burmese males do at his age.  When he in his 20’s he may re-don his robes for a second one year term of monasticism”. The tourism boycott that persuaded many to steer clear of Myanmar for over a decade was lifted last year and it remains a world apart – a country to stimulate all the senses.  It’s up to individual travellers to decide whether or not it’s time to visit, and if you do, to travel responsibly.
