Instead the boys were taken to the Indonesian island of Tual in the Arafura Sea, one of the world's richest fishing grounds, stocked with tuna, mackerel, squid, shrimp and other lucrative species for export.Myint spent weeks at a time on the open ocean, living only on rice and the parts of the catch no one else would eat.He and several other young men quickly put their hands up to go. He was only 18-years-old, with no education or travel experience.But he kept begging, arguing that he wouldn't be gone long and relatives already working there could look after him.On islands scattered throughout the Maluku chain in Indonesia, also known as the Spice Islands, thousands of migrant fishermen who have escaped or been abandoned by their captains quietly hide out in the jungle.Some start families with local women, partly to protect themselves from slave catchers.Neither of them knew it but, at that moment, Myint began a journey that would take him thousands of miles away from his family.
For five years, he lived this simple life and tried to erase memories of the horrors at sea.
The captain shouted that everyone on board now belonged to him, using words Myint would never forget: He was panicked and confused.
He thought he would be fishing in Thai waters for only a few months.
He learned to speak the Indonesian language fluently and acquired a taste for the food, even though it was much sweeter than the salty Burmese dishes his mother fixed.
In the meantime, the world around him was changing.
So when a fast-talking broker visited the neighborhood three years later with stories of jobs in Thailand, Myint was easily wooed.
