About Jammu and Kashmir
This was like a childhood dream coming true. A trip to Kashmir was long awaited.I had my air tickets booked via Air Asia but due to the unrest situation in Kashmir the plan was hazy. I was disheartened.I decided that I had to go and the day came when I picked my bags up and left for Kashmir.I booked my first night stay through Air BNB as it was comparatively cheaper than other hotels. The house owner came to pick me up at Srinagar Airport. I reached at his place, got myself freshen up and went off to roam around Srinagar.To be very frank, at first I felt that the Kashmir I have heard about and seen in movies is not what it looks in real. Srinagar was a little disappointing against my expectations.

Visit to the market - Our driver, Philbru took us to the market in Leh. The market was interesting enough to roam around. We were looking out some shawls and visited lot of shops. Finally we could find the stuff we were looking for in a shop called Zanskar Arts. There was a person/ seller named Arman who offered us Kawa, a drink of this place. We didn't really responded to the offer but he made it and served. He was on roza, yet he had put in an effort to make it, lot of gratitude to him. It was a very tasty drink which gave lot of warmth to us. Kava, The tea is made by boilinggreen tea leaves with saffron strands, cinnamon bark, cardamom pods and occasionally Kashmiri roses to add a great aroma. Generally, it is served with sugar or honey and crushed nuts, usually almonds or walnuts.Amazing treatment for the guests, the people in Ladakh give.
