Surprise! Surprise! When our shikara was about to reach the ground, we could see from the lake, a Caucasian lady snapping a photo of us! Right after we arrived, Mr Ghulam called us to introduce us to Janice, an American from Oregon who’s been staying in one of Clermont Houseboats as she’s stationed here for a few months as a journalist. Janice is a sweet lady and she said she would email to us the photos soon. And here they are!
Shikara ride at Clermont Houseboat: Rs.300
We cannot give any excuse for Mr Ghulam’s offer to take shikara ride with Lhasa (the old guy’s name is really Lhasa!) since we did not yet ride any shikara when we were staying near at Ambassador Houseboat. Mr Ghulam said we could go with Lhasa for shikara ride during sunset for Rs. 250 for one hour. So after coming back from walking in Nasim Bagh, we’re now ready for shikara treat with Lhasa!
