Myanmar - Inle Lake Market Day

The local dentist office at the local market. Markets rotate weekly at 5 different locations on or along the lake.

They look like small stones, but they are rich in iron. Women purchase and eat them for their daily dose. I'll stick to iron pills, thank you!

The lumber yard of Inle Lake on market day. Each village has their specialty. Bamboo, fish, vegetables, basket weavers, etc.

Seamstress using a manual Singer sewing machine. It costs .20 to sew a longhi (wrap skirt) after paying less than $2 for 2 meters of fabric.

We have traffic jams, they have long boat jams. We had to boat jump on foot until we got close enough to land. My gym membership pays off!

Ethnic woman from a neighboring village in her typical black dress and colorful head scarf.

...And I have so many more colorful and interesting photos!
