Ferry Crossing on the Irrawaddy

Yangon, April 2015

Coming back from Twantay, Myo Han Oo decided that we should take the ferry in our return to the city.  There was a haze of pollution and heat over the muddy river mid afternoon, but this crossing gave me a good look at the different types of boats that traveled the river, the various sizes, shapes, ages and levels of seaworthiness.  It's remarkable to see a craft that looks as if it should sink still floating along or even speeding past the trudging ferry and a stalled freighter.
