  12. Doug Hatlelid from North Vancouver, Canada writes: Rangoon's newest ferry service takes its first passenger across the Yangon river yesterday. The company's brochure says that monkeys were a niche market not served by other ferries. Hari, the ferry operator shown here, said it was better than his previous job polishing buttons for military police, and that the fruit and nuts his passengers give in payment are delicious. A military junta member, asked to comment on whether the service meets international child labour standards, said that water sports are key to the government's new fitness policy, and that in any case, the ferry operates only outside of school hours. When our reporter pointed out that according to Hari, his school closed in 2001, she was provided with an exit visa and escort to the airport at no charge.
