Sellers of flowers in dugouts on the lake inle, probably of Inthas origin.
The Inle lake is a lacustrine city and an immense floating garden where are growing
tomatoes, flowers and other vegetables. The Inthas developed a technique very
particular that permits to make float the plantations of tomatoes on a bed of algaes.
Unfortunately the ecology of the lake is threatened by the deforestations and the erosion of soils
who fill little by little the lake.
