The bus was driving slowly through the center of Yangon, fast enough that I could see the driver's face clearly. I could clearly see that the driver was wearing a cowboy hat. I guess cowboy hats are a man's trademark, because he wears one while driving. Intrigued, I pointed my camera at the driver. The driver then leaned out of the car window to respond.

Myanmar, unlike Japan, drives on the right side of the road. In spite of this, most of the cars on the road are second-hand cars that have been used in left-hand traffic countries such as Japan and Thailand. This bus is probably one of those that finished its life in Japan and is now living its second life in this country. As evidence of this, the driver's seat was on the right side of the bus, which was driving on the right side of the road.
