Yangon plunges into darkness every time the electricity cuts out--which is often. For those who can't afford a generator or a flashlight, candles are the only option. Here's one community behind the Central Railway Station in Yangon lit by candle light.
I love trains. So I stayed near Yangon Central Railway station this time and did a little photo essay. A mini personal project I suppose. Yangon's Central Railway Station is the largest train station in Myanmar. Built in the 1877 by the British, destroyed during World War II and rebuilt to its current incarnation in 1954. The trains are rickety, unreliable but there's a community of people who live at the station and their livelihoods depend on it.
