One of the most striking things about Phaung Daw Oo monastic school in Mandalay is the near-constant activity on its campus. It's a vital place, where 10,000 students--most from hard circumstance--thrive on a campus roughly one city block long. Quiet moments were rare, and whenever they did appear, I was always glad I had a camera.
