More Pressing Plants 

So, here we are, sitting in the little patio space under one of the houses (on stilts) at Nam Sabi with plant specimens scattered all over the orange tarp laying little clippings of plants on a sheet of newspaper and pressing them. Some of us are working harder than others. Clockwise, starting with Yinhtan Syan Bay (in yellow t-shirt; selecting which cuttings to press), villager (watching), U Saw Htun (dozing?), two villagers (watching), Kate Armstrong (arranging a specimen on the newspaper), Myint Thein (reading the newspaper), and Kyaw Zin Aung (helping Kate arrange the specimen). That's my yellow duffel at the bottom left of the image. I had just gotten up from laying against it while taking a short nap when I took this picture. Go here for another look at plant pressing in northern Myanmar.
