On our way into Downtown Yangoon/Rangoon I was happy to see the obligatory chicken-truck.
As I walked from the bus stop at the famous hotel, I think I saw one of the most disturbing things I have ever seen. Since I was ahead of all the other crew walking in the same direction, I was unfortunately the first to see this, which I will never forget.
A naked infant was sitting alone on the concrete sidewalk. Shocked and repulsed at the situation and instinctively wanting to pick up that infant but not being able to… After a couple seconds of complete shock I noticed a brother sitting nearby, counting Kyat bills in his hands. It was really terrible. I don’t know what I should have done and I am ashamed to say I stepped over the infant and continued on my way..
The other crew who saw this as well noticed a mother begging not too far away.
