Nice photo! I've been to Yangon and really enjoyed it; would love to go to Inle Lake. I'll be sure to check out your blog. Did you go in 2012? Are foreign travelers still required to spend a certain amount of money there (when I went in 2003, the "official" requirement -- not always enforced -- was to convert US$200 upon arrival). Thanks!
