It was such a short time that we got to experience Inle. Before we left for Yangon, this morning we visited some other temples and hand-made jewelries workshop. Along the sides of the lake were floating tomatoes fields which they put bamboo trees to position those fields and stop them from floating away as the water flows. As we go upper to the mountain area where the spring water just came out fresh from the top, there were more children playing in the water. They were all very cute and friendly. When they saw our boats coming by, they hopped up, waved and said hi to us.:D
Some of the temples we visited in Inle were not less beautiful than what we have seen in Bagan. However, as we came closer, they were indeed in very poor condition. Some of them were empty, some Buddha’s heads were not there anymore. Some structures and painting were crushed, and some construction were broken down. I could tell without doubts that this was because of human destructions because most of the broken area had a missing piece that people in the past tried to steal. I could not imagine how much more beautiful this place originally were and could have been without these influence.
Leaving Inle in the afternoon, the trip is almost over but I know for sure that I am coming back in the near future. It is even more possible for how close Vietnam and Myanmar are and how Myanmar is just one flight ticket away.
