Week 36: Dangerous

I had a window seat on the motor coach in Rangoon and saw this scene from the major road we were on. It was an elevated curve that went over multiple railroad tracks, in the background on the upper right. What seemed so dangerous to me was the fact that the dirt foreground is the shoulder of the road with no guardrail. Below, is a community of people living in shacks next to the tracks. It would be so easy for a driver, especially at night, to go off the road and barrel down into the houses and the people who live in this impoverished neighborhood. A disaster waiting to happen. Or maybe it has already happened.
