Inle Lake Markets

Fish and lentil soup kitchen. 

Spice shop. 

Market stalls. 


Blacksmith shop. Seemed to mostly make what I'd call a half sized machete. Wife sitting up high has strong shoulders, she uses the two bamboo poles to pump air to the fire. 

Hydration becomes snack. 

Challenging local word becomes "organic Myanmar peanut brittle" in my books. 

Transport on the lake is these long boats and basic Chinese Diesel engines. Hand crank to start. Exhaust blows straight to drivers face as apparently they don't know/don't care, and engine loses too much power of it's put into the water. They seem to run all day every day, but thy sound worse than a dying 15 year old lawn mower.
