You will see men and women wearing longyi (lon -gee) everywhere in Myanmar.
I had to have one… or maybe five.
So off we went to the massive Bogyoke Market for a bit of shopping.
This was also an opportunity to practice some basic Myanmar language. Luckily the helpful vendors’ English was soooooo superior to our rudimentary Burmese.
I am hoping dressing in a longyi may help me to assimilate faster… perhaps wearing one will also make me a little more elegant like the local women. We shall see.
Ready now for my first week on the job.
