    They are tough people, and tough boats. I thought the dog and the boy were a good pair - Both look like they're making their own mark on the World as individuals.

    Here're some more shots down at the Port, this time at the Ferry terminal ( You shouldn't encourage me... :) ):

    Great shots. What an amazing scene building those boats - incredible skills & time consuming.

    Yangon is a great place to delve into. On another trip, I had a cup of tea with an elderly Burmese Indian teacher. When talking about the younger generations, now fully kitted with iPhones and Bangkok fashion, he said "Yes, they are cheating and eating", meaning that it was all material show, and missing substance.

    Probably aligned with every older generation's perspective on every younger generation since the dawn of generations... :)
