The flow of the Ayeyarwady River was slow. And a woman was crouching on the edge of the water. She was just doing the laundry there. Perhaps, there were no water places to do washing clothes in her house. I saw many dwellings without running water in Pyay.

Although I didn't know whether the water was clean or not, she didn't care. She smiled faintly while she wrung the laundry dry out. Beside her, a battered birdcage was seen.
