A Monk's Drink of Choice

Travelling Nepal at Kopan Monastery, a group of young monks on a study break were sitting together drinking coca cola in old glass bottles. What struck me in this particular photo is the soulful, old looking eyes of this young child and that children thousands of miles away in vastly different circumstances still share connections in the drinks they choose.
