Scaramouchine returned to Yangon (formerly Rangon). She ate, she shopped, she explored colonial Burma.
Scaramouchine was impressed by the ad hoc buzzer system invented by urban Yangonese. Because few apartment buildings have working buzzers or elevators, the Burmese have invented a “string and clip” system whereby you can drop down a clip containing a key (as there is no way to buzz a person into the building) or some forgotten item, like an umbrella.

Love your photos in Yangon. I left Myanmar back in 1973, I sure do missed Yangon.
So sorry for the slow reply! Life is so busy I haven’t had time to update my blog! Are you Burmese? Myanmar in 1973 must have been so different! Already it is changing quickly. I have friends there who now can cheaply and easily get a cell plan!
