Happy Burmese Saleslady— Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Happy

This is our entry in Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Happy and in The Daily Post Photo Challenge: Smile.

This happy young woman is minding her stall in a market in Kyaikto, Myanmar (formerly called Burma). On her face she has applied thanakha, a paste made from the ground bark of the thanakha tree, which cools her skin as it blocks the sun.
