Unruly Paint Jobs

Hands down, Yangon has some beautiful old architecture thanks to Brits combined with the Burmese.  BUT, they do a crappy job of painting these buildings which most are covered with black mineral deposits, mold, rust, betel spit, miscellaneous things I can’t identify, and more paint that doesn’t blend in with the rest of the building.  Strangely, it makes the building an odd combination of tenants doing whatever they want for their own viewing pleasure (or lazy landlords) and a beautiful mosaic of color.  Take a look…

Half blue, half brown window frames - it's ok!

Half of the building painted... not bad.

Love the partially painted window frames
