Here are some photos from the village festival that I attended in Myanmar’s Shan State back in March. This pagoda festival — on the full moon day — was held on the grounds of the monastery in Tat Ein village, just a few miles down the road from Nyaungshwe.

I’ll be posting a longer roundup of this festival in the week or so, but for now here are some of my favorite photos of the people in attendance that day. The young and old, parents and children, monks and donors. It was quite a spectacle!
