It seems to me that the bus is not so much so over crowded yet the people sitting overhead is merely for air.

If it has wheels and an engine it will be packed where ever it's destination :-))

Such an interesting view of life in Burma.
The people look happy enough, in spite of being packed in like sardines.

Peter, I am wondering about the quote: "The patient flock may be packed in a narrow sheepfold".
Sounds as it may be from some Sacred text, perhaps the Bible, but I am unfamiliar with it. Will you enlighten me?

Larry, as you know, I am a collector of all sorts of "things" and one of my many collections deals with Dutch proverbs. I started as a child, just by memorizing the proverbs I heard or read, but in the 80-ies, when I got my first PC, I put them on file and complemented them with proverbs taken from the many proverb books I meanwhile possessed. One of them provides a large number of Dutch proverbs together with their equivalence in English, French, German, Spanish and Latin. For the Dutch proverb "Er gaan veel makke schapen in een hok" it mentions the equivalences:
"The patient flock may be packed in a narrow sheepfold"
"Der geduldigen Schafe gehen viele in einen Stall"
"Para ovejas pacientes hay siempre puesto en el establo"
"Unum claudis oves plures in ovile volentes"
This book (Van Dale Lexicografie: Spreekwoordenboek in Zes Talen, ISBN 90-6648-311-3) claims that the equivalences are not just translations but existing proverbs in the corresponding language!
