Not long ago, he accidentally overdosed on medicine he was taking to treat his tuberculosis.<p>Now he lies on the floor, his hands curled into claws, his eyes staring vacantly. He cries out to his parents for help. His mother cradles him, and for a moment, he seems to smile.<p>Zomir was getting treatment at the main hospital in downtown Sittwe.

Sanctions were lifted last year on the country. Just this week, Coca-Cola opened its new bottling plant outside of Yangon. Now all the company has to do is figure out a way to sell all that Coke to people who may not remember what it tastes like.<p>The Myanmar people missed out on billions of dollars of worldwide advertising during those 60 years.
