    Rangoon, Burma: Diary of a Crumbling City

    By 1885, the British had pummelled the Burmese, taking control of the country. To this today evidence of colonial Britain remains throughout Burma. Since January of 1948 when the Burmese took back control of their land and government, the infrastructure has been horribly neglected. The ruling Military Junta that only in the past year has eased it's death-grip on the citizens, spent virtually nothing on roads, footpaths and building upkeep. The city therefore is a crumbling disaster, complete with gaping chasms present on all roads and sidewalks. With Burma on the eve of welcoming the world, and such things as the first ATM's set to open, the country faces a long road of catch-up. Amongst it all, the people remain proud, gentle and curious to all who visit this amazing country. Grant/The NYBureau
