Mandalay, Myanmar

    Three Buddhist monks shlep by in front of the Royal Guest House to collect their morning alms in Mandalay, Myanmar.

    Around 5:30 am, the bus driver cranked on some music to signal that we had entered Mandalay. Luckily, he didn’t play a bunch of bad Burmese power ballads for the whole final hour, like the last time I made this trek. After we pulled into the dusty, chaotic bus terminal, I climbed into the bed of a little pick-up truck with a couple of French-accented tourists and got shaken into town across the city’s many bumpy streets. We were just in time to see all of the Buddhist monks making their morning rounds to collect alms (free gifts of food and money from locals), and I shot some frenetic-looking video clips of them from a vantage point looking out the back tailgate on the way. A few more walked by out in front of the Royal Guest House, and I got a couple of good photos.
