January 8 (part 5): Inle Lake is the second largest lake in Myanmar, about 45 square miles in area. It's of interest particularly because of the way people live on the lake itself.
On our way on Inle Lake from Nyaung Shwe to Golden Island Cottages, our hotel - in the middle of the lake - for the next two days, we passed fishermen with their characteristic conical nets. Once they've located a school of fish, they beat the water to drive the fish into the nets. Here, they're still looking.
