where the cool kids go

Daunt Gyi village now has a school with three classrooms made from reinforced concrete to protect against cyclones. The school sits between the river and more rice fields. I wish I had Polaroids to bring with me to give away to the teachers and students. But I was already quite a distraction in the classroom with my camera.

To read more about rebuilding and restoring initiatives in Myanmar, please visit ilovemyanmar. We’re already digging another well in Daunt Gyi. And by next year, Tee Chaung will have its own school. I love how love changes the landscape of everything we see and the way we see.

This last photo is for you, Siama Pat.
