Elderly buddhist nun smoking a cheroot, Burma : Stock Photo
Elderly nun at Hpo Win Daung smoking a cheroot. Monywa, Sagaing region, Burma.Culturally relevant information specific to this image:Cheroots are traditional in Burma and they are often associated with Burma in literature. Cheroot smoking has been associated with resistance against tropical disease - most likely the cheroot's aroma, by sticking to the skin and hiding the scent of sweat, which draws mosquitoes, contributed to making the smoker less of a target for their bites.Buddhism in Burma (also known as Myanmar) is predominantly of the Theravada tradition, practised by 89% of the country's population. It is the most religious Buddhist country in terms of the proportion of monks in the population and proportion of income spent on religion.
