How to live in a village in Burma?
• How to live in a village in Burma?
As in an instant to make our long-suffering province of attractive and convenient place to live? Very simply - enough to compare with the Burmese Russian village. Against the background of the latest even remote villages of the middle band - a sample of "comfort" and "luxury".
Burmese village houses are similar to what we call the huts. It's a cross between a small veranda and a large cape. How they can live for years - can not imagine. For example, in a house on the main photo 13 people live permanently. Sleep in two open-air floor.
But most of all struck by something else: the dirt and debris. The impression that the village stands on the landfill of municipal solid waste. I think this is a consequence of a collision of two civilizations. The fact that all the debris - wrappers, packaging, bottles - do not produce in Burma, it is all brought imports. Accordingly, there is no culture of recycling and disposal. In fact, there is generally no concept of waste. For hundreds of years the locals threw cleaning fruits and fish bones at his feet, and the nature safely absorb these wastes. And with bottles and plastic harder. It does not rot and is accumulated and accumulated, transforming the village into a landfill ...
