Late Afternoon on Inle Lake

Late in the afternoon we stopped at another pagoda. Here again were people adding gold leaf to a statue (video below). Among other things, a nice large coiled snake, a gong being hit by a man.  Coming back to the hotel on longboats as the sun was setting we saw more fishermen doing their one-legged thing. The last few pictures are not another pagoda, but our hotel whose entrance was along the pattern we saw at many places.
