The 3 of us decided to check out Inle Lake. Tim had never been before and we heard some positive reviews. After spending a few days there, I have to say that I've seen better. It was pretty filled with tourist and hence has lost it's cultural charms. Needless to say, we found ourselves sharing a lot of laughs and made it a great time.
First thing we did was a day long tour on the water. It included visiting a number of trade shops, some interesting, some not so much.
We got off to wander and walked into a soccer game. There were so many colors going on that we couldn't figure out what the teams were.

Around sunset, some fake fisherman come out onto the waters to pose for tourists... as strange as it was, they still looked pretty cool
