I can find hundreds of photos of the photogenic U Bien Bridge in Mandalay but not so many of the amazing food for sale at the rest stops along the way.
Salty snacks made up of beans, corn or other starchy vegetables are really popular in Myanmar.
This woman is selling an unfamiliar food on the bridge, maybe some kind of nut?
Close-up of the ‘nut’. I have no idea if you eat it or burn it for fuel. (Update: February 2015: It is a nut called variously língjiǎo (菱角), water caltrop, water chestnut, buffalo nut, bat nut, devil pod, ling nut and singhara.)
Rice wine and salty snacks for sale.
More on our 2013 trip to Myanmar.
