Beautiful didn’t cut it for me. I needed a new word to describe what I was seeing and nothing that I could come up with was working. We were staying in a hut on stilts in the middle of Inle Lake. Every time a boat went by the whole hut swayed, ever so slightly. While we were in the middle of the lake on a map, it didn’t feel that way as there were islands and floating gardens all around us. But wait, there’s more!
