January 2010 in Burma we arrived in Mrauk U, we traveled by plane and found out by seeing these boys we have missed the Solar Eclipse. They used video tape to “protect” their eyes, far from optimal but creative use of trash.
The atmosphere in the streets was amazing, the children where in a state of highly unusual excitement. Bellow some more impressions.
Today’s I missed the solar eclipse here sitting in some meeting. Later during the lunch break I did not saw such an excitement outside in the street.
