Walking the street of central Yangon, I found another bookshop. Some shelves were placed in the storefront and many books lined the bookshelves. Seemingly, this bookstore was a second-hand bookstore.

Unfortunately, most of them were written in Burmese. I couldn't understand what was written on them. Yet I could have a general idea of the contents by looking at the covers. Apparently, most of the books on the shelf were written about the history of Myanmar. I could find the faces of Aung San and his daughter, Aung San Suu Kyi. The books which put Aung San on a cover might be written about the independence of this country and the books which put Aung San Suu Kyi on a cover might be written about the contemporary history of this country.

The parent and child exerted a significant degree of influence on Burmese history.
