Monk fashion and Santa–

IMG_0328 IMG_0329 IMG_0336 IMG_0347POW!  Buddhist monks in Myanmar wear dark maroon robes for the most part with the occasional saffron wrap thrown in.  We love the dark maroon robes because they are a similar color to the chiles that are used all over Myanmar to make the food spicy and tasty here. . .mmm, aaaahh!

And then there is the Burmese Santa who we run into here in Yangon. . .he is wearing the typical outfit that we have come to expect from him–red jacket, red trousers, and red hat with furry white trim–so last century.  And his beard is gone. . .plus he has a deep brown complexion. . .lookin’ good, Santa, lookin’ good. . .he sure is a cosmopolitan dude.

I send you traditional vibes from Yangon. . .feel them. . .they are worth holding on to.
