FLOATING GEMS
Sukkur, Sindh


Colourful boats are docked on the River Indus at Sukkur, situated on the west bank of the river; it is third largest city in Sindh. Many of the people living in Sukkur make a living by fishing. Their boats, which are literally the vehicles of their livelihoods, are often elaborately decorated and hand painted.
