Srinagar Tourist.

Yesterday I went up to the mountain near my hotel with my host. It was a lot easier driving up in a car than walking.

A Shikara on Dal Lake

In the middle of the day, the lake was like glass. And hot. I do not envy this guy having to paddle around in the hot mid-day sun.

At the pixie palace on the next mountain, this girl was all dressed up in traditional Kashmiri garb for a photo shoot. You hire the clothes, then pay the photographer for the photos.

I went inside the Jamia Masjid with my host. I was a bit tentative but once I got inside it felt all nice and peaceful. It was built more than 500 years ago.

The Jhelum River runs all the way to Pakistan and used to be the main artery for trade and commerce in the old days.
