Sights Seen on the Return Trip along Inle Lake

After a very late lunch and a visit to the weaving ‘factory’ we only had one major stop left on the lake, and that was to a village that specialized in tobacco products.

Here they fabricated a variety of the cheroots (very popular with the village women) with tobacco marinated in honey or rice wine, and flavoured with tamarind, pineapple, chicory, alcohol or star anise.
