N.P.T.


A strangely modern ghost town with 8-lane wide roads and giant city blocks all laid out around empty squares of bush.. and nobody around.  As if made with giant cookie cutters, this city grid absurdly stamped onto the jungle was just built 8 years ago when the military government decided to move the capital up from Rangoon to Naypyitaw. Oddly, this is the only place in the country with 24 hour electricity working - as it's new - and suitable for government bigwigs. The place sort of reminds me of a cross between Pyongyang and Yamoussoukro.
