The Chinese are coming! ~ Yangon
Feb 9, 2002

The British were here but the Chinese are coming! It is an interesting parallel that British control of Burma came via India and that India only became the Raj to as the British government reluctantly moved to protect it's commercial interests there. Today China is the number one investor in Myanmar, a fact prevalent all over the country but neatly encapsulated by this clash of architecture in the heart of the capital. Will history repeat itself?
