Burma (Myanmar), Mandalay, Monks' luncheon ⓒ Julie Mayfeng
 
I can always learn new truths when traveling through Burma. One day I dropped by a place that was producing Buddha images and I found Buddhist monks eating meat and chicken. Some of the workers had offered it to them. Yes, it’s true. Buddhist, they are not all vegetarians. There are many Buddhists who eat meat in southern Buddhist countries. (image by Julie Mayfeng)
