An Intha fisherman at the end of a long day’s work, bathed in the golden light of a fiery sunset.

Intha fishermen have developed an unusual one-legged rowing style that, while appearing awkward, works very efficiently. These fellows glide across the surface of this shallow lake.

BTW, he is smoking a cheroot.

    They must have incredible balance!!!

  • Trish, I don’t know how they do it. When I got into my boat, I was crouching low and trying to be as stealthy as a cat in my movements. Hah! What a joke that was. I guess these folks are born to a life on these little boats, feeling as comfortable on rocking boats as on land.
