Row, row, row your boat


One of the best things about living in Karachi is the sea, as we’ve so often talked about on this very blog. Whenever the weather turns remotely pleasant, hordes of Karachiites pile into boats at Kaemari, the harbour, and go fishing/crabbing/lazing in the middle of the sea. Its a whole lotta fun, and a trip on a boat is enough to make you feel like you’ve travelled a thousand miles away from the dog-eat-dog, traffic-jammed city life to a world of your own. My friends and I did the same over the weekend, and the boat driver took us to a spot near the mangrove forests.

Of course, a trip isn’t complete without food, and the succulent crabs, prawns and fish (cooked RIGHT on the boat) is enough to make you wonder why we spend hundreds of Rupees on bad food in hip eateries when, for Rs.300 or so per head, you get a trip on a boat combined with excellent food. All in all, a boating trip is a must-have experience for any Karachiite or visitor to the city.
