Sorrow of Life

The below photos were taken (with respect to the lady) during the boat trip from Mandalay to Bagan.
It's double deck and really, really, really OLD boat (see last pic) which normally is fully loaded with several hundreds of people and tons of goods. On the way, it stopped more ten times for local people to hop on and off, and to trade off along the Ayeyarwady river.
I met this lady at one stop, somewhere between Mandalay and Bagan. I have no idea but think she is suffered from some kind of Hansen's disease (leprosy), then moving is big problem for her.
After few hour ride, she got all wet getting off the boat.
PS/ OK, let check out how old the boat is:
