Pa-O Girl Party!

Okay, all of these girls aren’t from Pa-O villages, in fact perhaps none of them hail from anywhere outside of Shan State’s Tat Ein village, but judging from the eager manner in which they donned traditional Pa-O outfits, a few of these girls certainly appreciate the black-themed Pa-O style.

When I wasn’t visiting the novice monks at the monastery up the hill, I would often spend time with these friendly young village girls near the school down the hill, not far from the village’s famous “cave”, where head monk U Sandimarr, affectionately known at Bhone Bhone, spends most of his time.

And just like the monks, these girls are delightful company and absolutely love to have their photo taken. Smile and say “Mingalaba!”
