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.

When wife says we need 2 days for shopping, we probably do, and may still miss a few things despite multiple visits to the market :P. The main market of the city is a small one with high redundancy across shops but it was great to listen to a few stories from a few old timers who would tell about times when there were only 3 four-wheeler in the region and when people used to play Horse polo right where the market stands today. Few of the interesting things we bought apart from the usual prayer flags, shawls, dry fruits and fridge magnets, were some crockery with dragon print and all. Remember to bargain like crazy when you are here. The shopkeepers are used to foreigners and the prices are inflated upto 400-600%. Also, do try apricots. They are yumm. Point to be noted: Don't skip the market. Even if you have kept it for the last day and you are tired.
