India - Srinagar - 1986

A very steep bus ride from New Dehli and into Kashmir. Srinagar is a spread out town aaround the south end of the Dal Lake. Houseboats are moored in the lake with mountain backdrops. Very pretty. Stayed in a houseboat for a few days but the sellers coming to the boat were regular and persistent. Moved into hotel by the lake shores. The lake flooded while there and so needed a boat to get into and out of the hotel.

The food was great and very different to the rest of India. Lots of nuts and dried fruit.

The big attraction was boating on the lake and its tributaries. Cycled around a reasonable section of the lake and visited lots of gardens.

At Sydney again so I decided on a kayak along a part of Cooks River and Wolli Creek. It was a bit difficult finding a place to launch...
