Yangon Central Station is the largest railroad station in Myanmar. It has several platforms, though not as many as Tokyo Station. The train to Bagan, one of the three major Buddhist sites in the northern part of the country, also leaves from this station. I crossed the bridge to the platform. I did not have a ticket, nor did I intend to go anywhere. I just wanted to take a look at the platform. It is interesting to see the variety of people at a station where many travelers come and go.
There were no trains on the wide platform, and it was deserted. Benches were set up here and there, and people were sitting quietly waiting for their trains. Like the halls of the station, the platform was also filled with a lazy atmosphere.
As I walked around in the lazy air, I saw some children. They seemed to be using the platform as a playground, not for boarding the train. Laziness seems to swallow travelers and non-travelers alike without distinction, and the children were no exception. The children, like the people waiting for the train, were spending their time on the lazy, muggy platform.
