Inle Lake, Burma again. When the original settlers moved down to the Lake from the North they were refused permission to build on the land, hence they built their dwellings in the Lake itself! Apparently there about 20,000 inhabitants here now. Restrictions have been lifted but dry land comes at a premium and the local villagers have devised a most ingenious way of growing food - floating gardens, kept in place with long sticks. I think this image is straight but shooting from a rocking boat plus the huts are anything but vertical...who knows!!
Many thanks to Ann (EAS) and all that commented/voted on 'Prohibition' - seems like I got the order of upload incorrect
