A Kick in the Longyi

May 2, 2011

No, it's not hacky sack; it's Chinlone. No visitor to Burma can go long before observing a group of men enjoying a round of the country's national sport. The game is especially popular at sunset, which is when I captured this video in the historic town of Pyay. The sumptuous view from Pyay's Shwesendaw Pagoda was just to good to keep for myself. So, enjoy the clip, grab yourself a ball, and start warming up those feet. You'll need plenty of practice if you hope to keep up with the Burmese!
