Life on Inle lake

This is a snapshot of life on Inle Lake. Locals who live on the lake get everywhere using longboats that they often row with one leg (as this person was doing). Rows of tomatoes can be seen in the background - Inya people use an ancient floating garden bed farming technique to sustain livelihood on the lake.
