Scenes from the streets of Yangon.
In Yangon, the former capital of Myanmar, bustle is pulsing through the streets. Cars and buses fight for space in this city of 5 million. According to the Washington Post, it wasn't always like this. They write:
A year ago, the city's roads were less congested. Unable to afford the $50,000 price tag for a used car, residents had to rely on buses and bikes (motor and pedal) and their own two feet. Then the new government lowered the cost to $10,000, creating a sticky conveyor belt of metal and exhaust
