Tuesday, February 24: After visiting the Mingala Market, I ride my bicycle down to the canal because I hear a lot of hoopla going on there. My hotel isn’t far from the canal. Crowds of Pa-O people are busy washing a Buddha. I stand on the sidelines and watch.
They are just finishing up the washing when I arrive.
They slowly and arduously put him upright, and take him back to the temple.
After they take off with the Buddha, the Pa-O people start to disburse.
I head to Inle Pancake Kingdom where I order a crepe with cheese, tomato, onion and avocado for lunch. It’s as delicious as the first time I ate here.
After lunch, I head back to the canal, where I hire another boat to take me to Inthein. I love this boat ride. Another beautiful afternoon on Inle Lake. 🙂
