Well an easy day getting around on a long boat on Inle lake,costed quite a few places,silversmiths,cigar makers and yep had one and was good but would of been better with an old bourbon!! Watching the carpenters make the long was interesting takes around 5 weeks to make one out of teak,last for 20-30 years if maintence is done every couple of years and cost $2500 Usd, also a lot of weavers making traditional cloth out of locus,the market place was also pretty cool

There is also a lot of vegetable gardens that are rendered by people in small boats,couple foot of dirt then a gap so the boat can go up and down the rows

Well that is a about it the phone is just about flat,still having a great time and see you tomorrow,which I have not planned anything to do might have an easy day and sort travel to Bago and the Golden RockBoat at house
