Open mind

Photo and caption by Johanna Wegener

U Aung Min, more than 70 years old, used to work as a writer and English teacher and owned a bookshop until he lost everything in a fire. I met him in a small teashop while resting in the shade. I was impressed by his open mind, knowledge and interest in the Western world.

Location: Mandalay, Myanmar
