30 Oct ’12

Full moon in October means Thadingyut celebrations in Burma.
Thadingyut marks the seventh month of the Burmese lunar calendar and the end of the three months period of lent, or the so called rains retreat for Buddhist monks. On Inle Lake we witnessed the last day when the lake hosts a ceremony of more than 20 boats with rowers, coming from different villages in the area.
