239 / Kashmir

Was several times in Kashmir in the '70's, 
these are scanned from old prints

It is or was a very beautiful place
though not without some difficulties, 
in the city especially

It could look so calm, & peaceful

Once we took a 'picnic' boat for a week,
with 2 crew, the country people were just great,
sometimes kids would run beside us on the shore;
doubt if thats possible now.
