Entry Description

During my journey through Myanmar I visited a nunnery in Sagaing. The Buddhist nuns allowed me to photograph some of their (daily) activities like preparing a religious ceremony by making a picture with local flowers, dish washing etc. While observing these women I realized that daily life in a nunnery is hard working.
