Hi, it's Jamil. Well we're back in India but it is not so bad because I think it is the houseboat ( it is one day old) we are in. We were not so sure at first because of Allepy and the houseboat we rented there. But this one does not move and we can still smell the cedar they used to build the boat. They even have chandeliers for lights! It has a living room, a diningroom, 5 bedrooms but we rented only 2. The first day there we did a lake tour. First they took us to a small island where the only thing you do there is dress up in costumes to be people that do not fit my style. Then next we went to a floating mosque that mom does not feel comfortable in because everybody thinks that dad should teach us Hindi and about Islam. Then we went to the floating garden where they mostly grow watermelon but the farmers don't need to water the plants because they're on water. Well, there is dirt and roots so they can grow. Then we had to eat but the food is really good here and we got

to eat on the boat. Then we stopped at an arts and craft shop along the water. Like usual we took 1 hour there. Then we got home and found another guest in the nice houseboat. I think he likes it too. Today is mom's birthday and so we surprised her with a card and a picture frame so we can remember Kashmir with pictures. Then we walked to a carpet making show case thingy which was pretty interesting but then came the waiting part where we have to walk up 10 dreadfull stairs to the buying part... dun dun dun da... but this time we came up with a plan to be silly so they will get tired of us being silly so we will leave and it worked. Then we got a taxi to take us to this internet cafe. That's all for now folks, see ya next time.
