Rahab player

Srinagar, Kashmir

I was staying on a houseboat in Srinagar. On a neighboring houseboat a carpenter was preparing the elaborate wood carvings that adorn these famous boats. He took a break by pulling out his Kashmiri guitar, or Rahab. That is a samovar filled with Kashmiri-style ea (heavy milk and sugar) next to him.
