The steering wheel and the driver are on the right side.
This is actually not uncommon in Myanmar, as Burma used to be a British colony. The British introduced left-hand traffic to the country, which is technically still the official rule. But in 1970, president General Ne Win decided to change all that after dreaming about dying in a car crash on the left side of the road.
Without so much as a flinch, Ne Win introduced right-hand traffic the next day. One can only imagine how insanely chaotic Burma’s streets must have been after his sudden ruling!
I know this has little to do with sound recording, but we will soon be travelling to Hispaw by train and explore the jungle there. Then we’ll finally have some more sound material too! In the meantime, we are still sweating in the Burmese heat and waiting for the Avosound cloud solution to come to fruition.
