Meet the Monks!

30group02

It was time, way past time. I’d been hanging out with these novice monks at the monastery in Tat Ein village for several days, but I hadn’t learned any of their names. And some of these boys weren’t new faces; several of them had been at the monastery the previous year, and a few were around the year before that. This time there were only nineteen novice monks in residence, about half the number as last time, so I decided to do an exercise one afternoon and learn the name of each monk.

I had them all line up and write their name in my notebook. Next to their name, which they all wrote in Burmese, I wrote down what sounded like their name so I could remember it. To make sure that I could match the names with the faces, I took a photo of each monk. So, here they are; the novice monks of Tat Ein monastery!
