Back in December 2015 when I was celebrating my 30th wedding anniversary on our 30-30-30 trip, I was fortunate enough to visit the country of Myanmar. It was one month after Aung San Suu Kyi had been elected ,so the Burmese (Myanmar’s inhabitants) were all in a celebratory mood. We spent a few days in Yangon, the former capital before flying to the city of Heho and then driving to the town of Inle,where we took a fast moving long dugout-like boat several miles to our home for a few days:the Inle Resort and Spa.
Win,our guide,(above)helped us explore the towns and villages that were literally built on bamboo stilts over the water. Most towns had the houses lined up over the water in rows of watery streets so it was easier to access to their homes
I still have a lot of work to do and will be continuing my work this Sunday, May 1 at 7th South Craft Food and Drink(see following story)–Rome wasn’t built in a day. Stay tuned for updates as I complete this complex painting!
