The approach to the Shwe Inn Thein pagoda at In Dein, Lake Inle, Myanmar, is up a long slope of very many steps. Fortunately it’s covered, for in the heat of the day, it would be impossible to climb. It’s lined with stalls selling all sorts of handicrafts but there were also a couple of bric-a-brac stalls.

I wonder if the teapot with the violets on it is a relic from the days of the former British occupation?
