You gradually open your eyes and begin to soak in the dreamlike scenery that surrounds you. Glimmering water that mirrors dazzling blue skies and all-enveloping mountains. Dozens of silhouettes in the distance which acrobatically row canoes using one leg while deftly manipulating fishnets with free hands. Children smiling and waving from cherry-stained wooden houses comfortably perched on top of still waters. Farmers harvesting crops which have miraculously sprouted from floating soil. And everywhere you look, mesmerizing reflections which intensify the surreal beauty of it all. This is Inle Lake, Burma. And even the most imaginative of minds could hardly dream up a place like this.
