Dal Lake houseboats

When seen one right after the other, the difference between a Dal Lake houseboat and Kerala houseboat is striking.

One moves. One is permanently anchored to a man-made bit of land.
One is made with rice mats, replaced every year. One is serious woodwork and paint.
One cruises by palm trees and fishermen. One sits quietly nestled in a Himalayan valley.

I like good contrast.
