Heaven on Earth!
This was tough duty
Local fruit stand
The only place I saw Tabasco!
The air was 90, the water was 80, perfect!
Watching over the bay and a guide for the East India Company ships to come in
Typical squid boat set up
Squid Lights On The Horizon
Tied Up For Bad Weather
My favorite restaurant
Amazing how they get these heavy wooden boats around with no motor
Drying the days catch
Mmmmmmmmm, more squid than you could possibly eat!
They used the oxen to pull the boats up onto the beach for repair and unloading, and then back in.
Who needs a Travelift when you have these?
She came running out so I would take a picture of the baby. Most of the women her age chew Bettlenut. Over time it rots the teeth, and turns your mouth red. Even the monks use it. Supposedly medicinal....and a nice buzz
Your upscale Myanmar Fishermans house
The food was cheap, delicious, and you can't beat the view!
The sunsets were amazing. Looking over the Bay of Bengal towards India
I had lunch here, 6 out of 9 days! About two hours walk down the beach from my bungalow
More local transportation
The Burmese Beach Boys. They had no idea who the Beatles or the Rolling Stones were, Zhaw, with the other guitar, was the only one who spoke english, but they knew all their chords, played all original songs, and had never seen anyone flatpick before. We got along great!
The daily grind
After three nights of this, Zhaw's mom, who ran the place and was the cook, refused to take my money for the lobster and prawns. I still had to buy the Burmese wine..Good Though!
This is why I was booked for three days, which turned into four, and then into six, and then nine...etc.
Coconut Whiskey. There's a reason it's still full.
Free Breakfast Buffet, brought to your bungalow.
Local temple with Stupa
Not a bad place to have breakfast every morning
Ngapali Beach, and the people of Lin Thar Village left an impression on me like that of the people and area around Luang Prabang, Lao. One of the most special places on this planet. I will definately be back.
