People in Myanmar are shy, polite, proud and friendly.
And very photogenic.
They didn’t mind my making their photographs. It seemed a pleasant experience for those photographed. Showing them the result when possible always produced smiles.
On more than one occasion I was asked to have my photo taken with a local. Not because of my good looks, but more because I am a Western tourist. It was always an enjoyable experience with lots of smiles and laughs exchanged.
And oh yes, it seems everyone has a smartphone.
