Faces On Friday - Buddhist Monk and Family - Yangon - Myanmar

In Myanmar there is a long tradition of temporary ordination of Buddhist monks and married men can traditionally return to the monastery from time to time, provided they have their wives' permission. As seen in this next photo, where the wife and daughter are proudly walking along behind this monk.   This photo previously appeared in my post entitled Yangon - Further First Impressions of Myanmar - Burma on my Travel Tales blog.


  1. How interesting. I wonder where the women go when they fancy a break from their husbands!

  2. I had the same doubt as Fun60. :)
    Great shot, made more interesting with the story.

  3. did not know this about the monks. i like the brilliant colors of their clothes

  4. I didn't know this. Our traveling grandson and his wife loved Myanmar.


Welcome to my photography blog, where I share the world as seen through my lens. All commenter's will receive a visit back from me but no longer individual replies unless you have a question, which I will respond to here. Your praise and kind words are always appreciated but to keep saying thankyou to you all individually, in an original way is not easy. So I am saying it here instead, a massive thankyou from my heart for all the wonderful support, your comments are a great encouragement to me.
