Across the Yangon River, in Dala, five men work around the clock.
From dawn to dusk, every day of the week and for about $6 a day, they hammer, tear up and pull to pieces old boats to resell their parts.
Wooden hulls become chairs, tables or firewood. Motors, if they are good enough, will propel other vessels.
In Nature, nothing is lost. Except perhaps the health of these brave workers.
