My favourite shot from In Dein, Myanmar

This has to be my favourite from In Dein at Inle lake, Myanmar. I met him once before and I made it a point to visit him and his blind wife again this time round. He was a bit under the weather when i took this shot but it definitely didn't show. He works as a caretaker at the In Dein monastery compound. There do not have any children and they stay in the monastery compound in a rundown wooden hut. What struck me most was that despite the dilapidated conditions they have to stay in, they are a happy couple. This reminds me that there is very little in life that we require to stay happy.

Here is another shot of him

and his wife.
