Picture of the Week #44

A typical scene in Burma.  There is not much else to do in this country as far as "work" is concerned.  People employed in the tourism industry are relatively well-to-do, and so are government employees.

Career options are limited for a young person in Burma.  One either becomes a monk, joins the army or goes to another country (too expensive).

Oh! This is sad. I thot "responsible tourism" was picking steam in Burma given it is participating in RT Awards happening this yr in India. But like a growing economy much like India perhaps there isn't enuff going around for everyone to get a share of...?
