A Glimpse of Southeast Asia

Cherie Butler

A home in the Twante township of Myanmar. They make pottery and other goods here, and the predominant religion is Baptist in this area rather than Buddhist. No one worked this day as they were observing their Sabbath.

An older woman with her bag of tea lives working on an estate. The workers fill up an entire back, walk up to the mill for the leaves to be sorted and manufactured. Many workers are Tamil refugees from India who work for very little money.

In this village of Twante, Myanmar, large pots are handmade and hewn in large kilns to be sold. They do not sell or work on their Sabbath day.


BIO: Cherie Butler loves to travel and bring the outside world “in” through a simple lens. These are samples from trips to Myanmar (Burma) & Sri Lanka.
