Life On Inle Lake In Myanmar

INLE LAKE, MYANMAR – DECEMBER 16 : Intha leg rowing fishermen paddle on Inle Lake at sunset December 16, 2011 in Inle Lake, Myanmar. The famous lake is 22 kilometers long and 11 wide and has been a fisherman’s paradise for years where they use their leg rowing technique, standing on the stern on one leg and wrapping the other leg around the oar. They catch a type of Carp called Nga-hpein selling it for about USD 1.00. This allows the fishermen to better see many obstacles on the large lake offering relief to their arms. For many years Myanmar has suffered from economic stagnation, political repression and international isolation. In March the army handed power to a civilian government after almost five decades of the military regime’s strong arm rule. The handover took place after a controlled election under a new constitution that preserved much of the military clout.
