morning alms

I just came across this image I shot in Myanmar. If you get up at sunrise, you'll see hundreds (thousands in certain areas) of Buddhist Monks walking the streets collecting their morning alms from people of the community. It's usually always rice for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! With a couple other sides if they are lucky. We talked to some of the monks and most said they love rice and never get sick of it, but one said he couldn't wait to be done being a monk so he could eat whatever he wants, and go out drinking with his friends. At least he was honest! :)
