Bathing in Indein Creek

January 9 (part 7): The Shwe Indein Pagoda (stupa forest) in yesterday's blog is located in the little village of Indein, which is on Indein Creek which flows into Inle Lake. The creek is not only a transit way for boats; it's a place for women and men - in separate locations - to bathe and wash clothes while socializing. Modesty is preserved: sarongs and briefs stay on during bathing.
