[chuck] in Kyaiktiyo, Myanmar, Other

This young fellow was working as a porter at Kyaiktiyo, in Mon State, Myanmar (see Kyaiktiyo). He'd wait down at the base of the mountain near the parking lot and carry people's bags, e.g. mine, up the steep ramp to the pagoda. Very professional. And courteous. And strong. Maybe 12-13 years old? [NOTE: He would carefully wrap the client's bag in plastic in case of rain during the ascent].
