Trip from Mandalay to Inwa and the Nanmyin Watch tower

On our trip to Inwa (former capital) we went by bus, ferry, and horse cart. Along the way we saw a wide variety of local civilization - a boat driver looking a bit like a ballet dancer, horse carts and other forms of transportation, and several village scenes and houses.  We passed were rice fields with Stupas in the background. We visited a monastery with some interesting wood carvings. At the monastery was  a school for very little kids and we saw some of them in the classroom and others hanging about doing various things. The Nanmyin Watch Tower which wasn't in great shape - I don't recall what its exact purpose was.
