The Nuns of Mandalay, Myanmar
I spent a good 15-20 minutes at a Buddhist nunnery in Mandalay and was able to watch them as they prepared for school. Although they were receptive and allowed us to see their place, they were quite shy and reserved. Although there were opportunities for some subdued photographs, I eventually asked them if they would like a print of themselves as I had my Selphy printer along. They posed and I gave them the print (on the lap of the nun on the right). It as a different story after that and their smiles opened up as well as their guard falling off. There are many times giving something in return is not too much to ask and reaps wonderful rewards.
