Tea Shops

burma food 7

Anyone who’s been to Burma or researched a trip to Burma or maybe even read anything whatsoever about Burma (Burmese Days, anyone?) probably knows about the Burmese affinity for tea shops.  They are everywhere in Burma.  I snapped this shot of a tea shop on my route home one day and was surprised by how beautiful it looked in the photo because, truth be told, I always thought of the street which it was on (Sayasan Road) as kind of junky-looking.  But this shot makes it look quite idyllic, which is, now that there is time and distance between me and Burma, how I would actually prefer to remember it.
