BAGAN AND CHILDREN
Always ready to carry a load on her head while leaving her arms free for her baby, the mother keeps a small cushion on her skull that allows her to place heavy baskets there.
The kids have fun imitating their mother, like the little boy I saw on the Moulmein station platform who, wearing her flip-flops, wore a cushion on his head as he sat on a carton.
A question :
… Did Louis-Barthélémy have had childhoods in Burma ?
Have I Burmese cousins ? ...
