I was looking through a box of old photographs that my sister gave me the other day and I have found several that are worth scanning and adding to the blog. The first is of a Houseboat I stayed in around 1972 while the family did a four week tour of India. It was called the Cutty Sark and was on the the main lake in Kashmir.
It was a really pleasant stay and to get to the houseboat you had to be transported on a small boat called a Shakari, not sure if that is the correct spelling. I am told it is a Shikari.
