Monks and Finger Puppets

Near the Shwe Inn Dain Pagoda, we stopped for a few moments at a metal constructed monastery building housing young monks. Sporting knitted caps and sweaters underneath their robes, these youngsters emerged from their warm blankets to check out the visiting foreigners through the open window. They got a kick out of the tiny finger puppet one of my travel mates had brought along. A dominant boy quickly pushed to the front to try out the dwarf, giggling as he bent his finger. Regardless of location and occupation, kids love such simple toys.
