Monks of Mandalay - Nomadic Boys

Mandalay was our first stop in Myanmar and the first thing we noticed was the large number of monks of all ages everywhere.

Even at the gate of Bangkok’s Don Muang airport waiting for our flight to Mandalay, we noticed numerous monks in their distinct red robes waiting to board.

In Mandalay we stayed at the excellent Yoe Yoe Lay Guesthouse. Every morning, we noticed the charismatic mama of the guesthouse, Nan Mwe, offering food to a group of young monks knocking on the door.
