Still Farming The Old-Fashioned Way


With animals and child labor.  Myanmar resides simultaneously in the 19th and 21st centuries.  I guarantee you that this kid plowing the field with two oxen and a hand made plow has a cell phone in his pocket.  Still, Myanmar has a labor intensive economy.  Instead of a truck pumping concrete to pour the second floor of a new hotel, you will find a complex, multi-tiered scaffold with 30 men heaving one bucket at a time up to the top.  Very little is done the easy way here, but on the other side of the coin, almost no-one is unemployed.
