Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir, India
We were supposed to go to the Shiva temple on top of Shankaracharya Hill, but once on the bus the driver told Ashraf that buses were not allowed on the windy hill road leading to the monastery.
Instead we went to the Nehru Botanical gardens while Ashraf's brother tried to organise cars . No cars when we finished so we went to another garden, which was under construction. not very pleasant in the heat so we returned to the houseboat.
After lunch we had a visit from the jeweller, the leather bag man, the pashmina seller.
They spread their wears on the lounge room floor and we spent the afternoon shopping. We all spent lots and had great fun.
