    Boat builders of Pwezagon

    Boat Builders

    These guys were using the big saw cutting these big timbers by hand. It looked like very hard work. One guy pulled from the top while the other guy pushed from the bottom. Whew!!
    Building a boat is quite a process as everything is done with hand tools!

    Village of Pwezagon

    Pwezagon

    Pwezagon is another of the idyllic Inle Lake villages. People seemed to be in another time. They were very friendly! As we motored through their canals the older people greeted us with a Mingalaba or the kids ran out with a Hello.

    More weed gathering

    Weed gatherers

    Near the village of Kela there were several long boats gathering weeds. So there must of been more floating garden construction going on! It seems to me that some day Inle Lake will dissappear from the continued construction of Floating gardens.

    local home

    I really enjoyed the homes fo the area even though I didn't have an opportunity to visit any but the small children would always come running out and say Mingalba or Hello as I rode by in my boat. It was so nice to see.

    Boat builders

    Here you can see that the boat is almost finished. I got different answers on what a boat cost but somewhere between US$400 and US$600 plus the engine.

    Monastery

    I don't remember the name of the Monastery but it was quite beautiful. There are a few similar Monasteries on the lake.

    The kids learn to row

    Row Row Row your boat

    I saw so many very young kids rowing the boats! The parents seemed to be quite patient waiting for the little ones to row their way through the canals. It was quite cute!
