Old woman smocking traditional pipe in
Mrauk-U (Myanmar - Arakan)
This aged lady (80 years old) is one of the
last six representatives of one ethnic group
that settled in Mrauk-U 200 years ago.
In fact, these women (and their ethnic group) come down from
the Chin state mountain.
Their ancestors came with the prince of their ethnic group
who had conquered Mrauk-U.
The women wear immense buckles of ears made of silver who
distandent the skin.
