One-leg Rower
Myanmar (Burma), Inle Lake, Ywama Village, March 2012

The Intha people of Inle Lake developed the technique of standing at one leg and rowing with the other, so that at least one hand is free to handle the fishing net. Inle Lake is the only place in the world where this rowing technique is applied.

Thanks all for the nice comments!
Joan, it is true, organized Burma trips are still expensive. As happened in Vietnam, prices will go down quickly when more tourists are coming, but at the same time the authenticity will vanish too!

I'm wondering if this technique helps with balancing. I'm not likely to try it to find out, but it probably does. How about you Peter....would you try it? :-))
