FBO IN NAY PYI TAW (ROYAL PALACE), MYANMAR
The Failed Bands of Oklahoma took these photos on a recent trip to Myanmar's new, in-progress capital city Nay Pyi Taw. Very very few outsiders have visited this city, founded in 2005 by the military junta that runs the country. Unlike the rest of the country, electricity runs all hours, for its eight-lane highways with pedestrians walking great distances. Some of the housing areas are only 10% full, of the shopping zone, only five of 183 shops are in use.
