Travel Photo: Pharmacy Shop on Inle Lake, Burma

When you travel, you see a lot of interesting things, behavioral patterns, culture, food and more. When I was exploring the area around Inle Lake, I was in this market that was supposed to the be local market for that day (In Inle, the markets change locations every day). This is the kind of market, the locals goes to buy everything from vegetables, meat, groceries, hardware, fertilizer, DVDs and even medicines.

I have seen many kinds of pharmacy shops, but I don’t think I have seen seen one where all the medicines were laid out at ground level and the only thing protecting these medicines from the elements is a tin roof above it. May be, such a shop in itself is a luxury for the people living on the Inle Lake as getting to a doctor or a proper pharmacy shop must be expensive and require lots of travel.
