Child in the temple.The Burmese ladies paint their faces with this tree pulp for sun protection as well as decoration. The children make small paper butterflies, which they give you, and expect a gift in return. They prefer lipstick or perfume, which they don't seem to be able to get there. I wish I'd brought more from home. We passed out toothbrushes from the hotels, which they were thrilled with.
