Burma (Myanmar) in the eyes of a farmer
Narasri and I have traveled quite a lot in Southeast Asia and we wanted to go to Burma for a long while. Tailored travel enabled us to travel at our own speed and get to know the local cultures, traditions and histories. Leaving Mandalay we started a four days long boat trip on the Irrawaddy to Bagan.
It is not possible in Bagan not to see at least a fistful of the approximately 2,000 couples or churches and to see how important the Buddha faith and practices are to the great majority of the people. On our second day in Bagan we made a ballooning flight over the temple, which was a magic time.
Leaving Bagan to fly by air to Inle lake in Shan State, we took a long row of boats to our lodge. There are many small towns around the pond, which are connected to the central pond by small sewer. Houses on and around the pond are lifted and transported by small canoes.
The lands have been reaped and swim on the waters, which are attached to the flat bottom of the lak. It is a fishing paradise and is home to the fishers who live in their vessels to see the flat waters from a bird's viewpoint.
Lesser known as the Angkor or Borobodur temple, Bagan is undoubtedly one of the "must see" in Asia. On the flat water of Allessee, the Inle Lakes are home to the Intha, who are living on the lakeside, build their homes on stilt beams and ride across the lakes with their strange rudder.
