These novices are standing in the famous old teak wood Shwe Yan Pyay Monastery, near Inle Lake in Myanmar's Shan State. During Thingyan, the Burmese New Year, many Burmese boys celebrate shinbyu, a special rite of passage when a boy enters a monastery for a short time as a novice monk. They live the tough life of the monks: waking up early, washing with cold water and strict discipline. As the monks do, they have to buy their food with money given as alms. One meal a Day
