The streets in the downtown followed a grid pattern. Yet they were not adapted to draw square shapes. They formed rectangles. And the long sides of the rectangles stretched as if they were direct roads between buildings.

I walked one of them. Many street vendors did business by the roadside. In the meantime, I came to a butcher. Many portions of meat were displayed on the wagon. I saw many butchers in the street. However, I have never seen people who slaughtered in the street. So there was a slaughterhouse somewhere else.

Watching the meat which was sold, I found some heads of the pig. This butcher sold not only pork but also heads of pigs. I saw them in the market in Okinawa, a southern part of Japan. Like the people in Okinawa, the people in Myanmar seemed to eat them.
