Abode of Kings

Disposable Words has uploaded the first pictures I (and quite possibly the world) has seen of Naypyidaw, the new capital of Myanmar. The nation’s military government has never fully explained the 230km move from the old colonial capital of Yangon (Rangoon), although I seem to recall talk of it being more difficult for America to attack. The city, the name of which means “abode of kings” is still under construction. The photos have been up since June but I only stumbled across them now… better late than never.
