Kashmir Birding

I arrived in Srinagar, Kashmir this morning. I managed to have 2 hotel touts attached to me. They just tagged along while I found my hotel. One of them tried to scam a commission from the hotel that I found all by myself. ha ha. too funny.

Late in the afternoon I went for a walk along the lake front and got accosted by hundreds of Shikara boat drivers. I organised a boat ride for 5.30 in the morning. There are thousands of boats and houseboats and no tourists. They are getting a bit desperate.

I found some guy making mutton kebabs and had a couple. I was craving some meat. Tomorrow I might have some fish.
