Roundabout rivalry


By Gordon…

You could throw a round circle of concrete at the junction of two roads and call it a roundabout or, as is the case with the new construction in the centre of our town Nyaung- U, take some time and make it decorative as well as practical.

Our stone mason artisans have been busy this past week putting the finishing touches on a new roundabout featuring figurative Myanmar reliefs. The middle has a beautiful garden.

Of course the art of ‘one-up-man-ship’ is always an issue in any town… our nearest roundabout is massive and includes a very popular play ground, exercise circuit and a very very old pagoda floodlit at night – located in the middle! Just saying.

  1. Love the “Our roundabout” comment Gordon. How do the children access the playground, if its in the middle of traffic? Is traffic patient with pedestrians?

  2. Hi Sonia – thinking of you on International Women’s Day – thinking what an inspirational international woman you are – you certainly have inspired me to ‘jump’ out of my comfort zone and take on challenges including leadership – Myanmar looks so colourful and amazing – congratulations to you and Gordon on taking on this challenge and contributing in such a positive way – stay safe and happy – Love Carolyn
