so long inle lake…

It was a very early departure leaving Inle Lake.  A boat ride, then a taxi to take us to the airport in Heho for the flight to Yangon in Myanmar.  As magical as it was…in all honesty, the boat ride leaving the Inle Princess Resort that morning was a little concerning.  There was so much mist and fog…often only a few visible feet as the boat went zipping cautiously along.  But, I kept repeating in my head…he knows what he’s doing…he knows what he’s doing…and sure enough he did.  We were lucky to have the same boat driver during our four days and he took such good care of us.

    So cold – and all of them are barefoot … mystic river photos, I’d say!

    Your b&w images really convey the mood and the cold, I was holding my breath for you on the early morning boat ride and I love how you honored your driver by letting him sparkle in his beautiful full blue color!

    All the B&W (except for your driver!!!) is perfect for these foggy images, Robin. I know you hated having to leave that magical place! What an experience…!
