How beautiful are these faces of Myanmar? Open, inquisitive, intrigued, bemused, and for the little guy on the left, perhaps a little bewildered at us and our cameras. I visited Myanmar (formerly Burma) for the first time recently and was touched by the genuine warmth and friendliness of the Burmese people. Tourism is still in its infancy here and the locals are as intrigued by foreigners as we are interested in them. Beaming smiles from faces painted with thanaka, the traditional sunscreen/makeup, greeted us at Ahara Thuka market outside the new capital of Nay Pyi Taw, where I captured this group of children looking after each other. The market was bustling with industrious families working together and offered and window in the life of the hard-working rural community.
