We decided to be intrepid so speaking not a word of Burmese we went out for a beer. No one in our bar spoke any English at all but through a lot of pointing we obtained 2 large bottles of local beer for £1 each (probably an inflated price as we were foreign)
We sat back to enjoy the nightlife on the streets of Yangon. Pretty soon we were approached by a beggar boy wearing a Man U t shirt. Kevin was pleased to see his team being supported out here so gave the boy a note worth about 60p. Soon after the boy’s friend appeared but as he wasn’t wearing the appropriate t shirt Kevin said no. The little chap raced off and appeared moments later wearing his friend’s t shirt and earned his 60p. A very enterprising young chap!!!
