While I was staying on a houseboat in Dal Lake, I took a little excursion by shikara. It seems like visiting Srinagar isn’t an option right now. Shortly after I left, there was an outbreak of violence.┬áHere are a few photos I took.

The shikaras all have colorful curtains to keep out the glaring sun.

And these were the two men who took me around the lake.
