Monks in the streets of Hsipaw


In the early morning, young monks would walk the streets of Hsipaw in long lines begging for rice from the local merchants. I went on an early morning walk after coming home from Hsipaw and while I didn't want to get in their way, I couldn't help myself and took a few shots.

Once the rice was obtained, they would all sit down at a big table and somebody would cook up the rice with a few vegetables before it was consumed by the monks who had by then turned in to chatting boys.
