    Ladies with sunscreen

    by vickss Written Aug 24, 2004

    Almost every female you find in Yangon will have a white or yellowish patch on her face. I am not sure if they do it all through the year but I guess it is used as a sunscreen during during the summer months.

    In the afternoon sun an umbrella is useful

    I saw many locals using an umbrella to stay out of the high heat of the afternoon sun. If you are fair skinned beware that it is scorching hot in March! This shot is taken in front of Sule Paya.

    It's hot out!

    I saw alot of Fans in this shape being used by people. Especially Monks but they would have different colors. And I think theirs were made out of cloth or silk.
