Inle Lake

On the second day at the Inle Lake, six of us hired a boat together for a day tour around the north part of Inle lake.

The guy wearing yellow pants was the first 'leg-rowing' Inle traditional fisherman we sighted. Though it is called a 'lake', it spreads forever.  The engine noise is rather big, but its monotone and somehow nerve comforting noise makes you feel like being invited to the peaceful dreamland.
    

* Quick Memo from Wikipedia - Inle Lake

Local fishermen are known for practicing a distinctive rowing style which involves standing at the stern on one leg and wrapping the other leg around the oar. This unique style evolved for the reason that the lake is covered by reeds and floating plants making it difficult to see above them while sitting.
