It was oddly quiet here last night.
Usually, at any major events, you can hear firecrackers going off for hours. During Poya days (full moon days – major important to Buddhists), during any holidays of any kind, and quite frequently, for no reason that I can fathom. Sometimes it’s just random.
But last night, New Years Eve, there were no firecrackers going off. Not a single one. And for this country, for a major holiday, this is extremely unusual. Just another sign of how sober the entire country is right now.
