Phone's Tea Shop Photo Essay

  1. 1. How do Burmese people live in a Teashop? Finding out about this is easy due to the many teashops in the city of Yangon, Burma. But, how do you really get to know them and what their daily lifestyle is in this teashop when you are living in a house? Well, first, you may take photos of their daily life while they are working and if you don’t speak their language bring or find a translator, and I recommend you become friends with the people in the teashops before you take photos. I will show you the daily life of the people living in a teashop in our school neighborhood. Some pictures will also show the job of one of the people who live there. Their life is different from us but that doesn’t mean they are all that different from us, they may even be better at doing things we normally do.

  3. 3. This is about people who live in a tea shop and work here, this is near one of the International schools in Yangon, Myanmar. These people work very hard.This is me and my group interviewing Aung Zaw a charcoal seller who works and sells charcoal in the neighborhood.
  4. 4. The charcoal sold by Aung Zaw is expensive but useful so he makes a lot of money from these bags and sandbags of charcoal. He gets the charcoal from the forests in the border of Yangon.
  5. 5. A look inside one of the charcoal sandbags. The charcoal in here has been pounded by a hammer until the powder remains and the powder is collected and placed in these sandbags.
  6. 6. This a small work area for Aung Zaw the person we interviewed. He sells charcoal to the people in the tea shops. There are tools that are used to crush or cut the charcoal into the needed shapes, the tools are mainly, a hammer and a pick axe.
  7. 7. The children who live with their parents in the tea shops do not have toys like us so they tend to be good at improvising things as toys. For example, this large and tall tree with vines hanging from the branches that reach to the ground and the spaces in the trunk of the tree provide a natural jungle gym the kids use to play.
  8. 8. The place to take a bath when you live in this teashop is this wide open bathing area. It is not private.
  9. 9. These are some of the clothing worn by the people who live here in the teashops. They are all Burmese and Buddhists. This is how one of the teashops look like. The green board at the back has Burmese writing on it and tells people who eat here what is on the menu.
  10. 10. This is the kitchen where the cook makes food for the tea shop. It is located just next to the place people eat. They use charcoal for heat to cook the food.
