The sun was beginning to fall on our final night in Myanmar. It had been an incredible voyage full of magical sights and warm, welcoming people. We had spent the previous day with our boat driver and his son and decided to watch sunset from the middle of Inle Lake for our finale. Hoping for a catch before the sun disappeared, fishermen balanced between their boat and paddle with net ready. After snapping a couple shots, we bought some fresh fish as a thank you for our driver and were immediately invited to his home on stilts to dine with his family for a meal that will never be forgotten.

Location: Inle Lake, Myanmar
