Home Improvements

A Burmese woman waits for her husband to put up an exterior wall on their home in a Burmese village north of Mae Sot, Thailand

I went back to the Burmese village that's just north of Mae Sot. This is technically in Myanmar but there's neither Thai nor Burmese border control at it and people come and go with no regard for whatever border is there.

I was walking through village and saw this woman standing in her home. You can see right through it and all of their worldly possessions stacked up in it. The exterior wall she was waiting for her husband to put up? It was a rattan mat. Something for us to think about when we complain about slow internet service or a cable outage. That is all.
