Abu Jafar (foreground), 60, prays next to a long line of Rohingya refugees, as they wait to be let into the Bangladeshi camps after crossing the Naf River from Myanmar. Abu Jafar made the same crossing in 1992, and said that the border guards had mistaken him for a new arrival and forced him to pray in the rice field instead of in the mosque across the road.

A woman leads a small yoga class in her apartment in Ulaanbaatar. Obesity and hypertension are on the rise in the capital city of Mongolia due to a traditional diet of meat and fried food mixed with the sedentary, modern lifestyle and traffic that is quickly becoming the norm in a city that really only saw such things come to life around ten years ago.
Ma Yu Mar Lar helps her friend and fellow, novice, Buddhist nun to shave her head. This is something they do about once a month. Buddhist nuns don't receive any of the same privileges or authority that monks do, even though they also devote their lives to Buddhism.
