Wander Pi Wednesdays: A Mother of Myanmar

Every Wednesday, I’ll be sharing one of my favorite photos from my travels.

In light of Mother’s Day on Sunday, I thought this picture of a Burmese mother and her son was perfect for this week’s Wander Pi Wednesday. During a two hour wait in the extremely busy Yangon Central Railway Station, I was approached by a big family who asked me to sit on their mat while we waited. The family immediately began to chat to me and we had a broken yet wonderful conversation. The mother told me all about her children and introduced me to her son who was more than excited to have a photo taken. You can see them here sporting thanaka, a natural paste made from ground bark used as a natural sun screen. These, among many others, were just a taste of the curiosity and hospitality that can be found in all corners of Myanmar.
