Feeding the Monks, Early Morning in Inle Lake

Arising early in Inle Lake and jogging through the frozen darkness down gravel paths I came upon the monks in single file line.  The footage here will become a later episode of hartensteinabroad called, "Feeding the Monks."
They pass each morning by the Teakwood Inn, leaving the monastery in burnt red robes, carrying earthen jars to be filled by villagers along the road with rice.
I wanted to follow them, these young barefoot boys, but thought better of it. I'll file that away for...some other day... such a perfect sight to come upon. Good luck, boys. Fill your stomachs. Others too.
