Myanmar: Inle Lake
June 13, 2013 § 4 Comments
One of the most amazing places I’ve visited so far, was Inle Lake in Myanmar. People are living on the water there – their houses stand on long poles, wading in the lake, their gardens float around and wherever they want to go, they have to take a boat.
They bath all together in the river, they are fishing with their hand-made nets and baskets, they role cigares and cigaretter, they weave cloth from the lotus threads, their kids are playing around and learning to row with legs – this is a very specific way of rowing, used in the region. They say it is much easier to see where to go and to avoid floating islands or other obstacles rowing like this.
