I moved into Al Zahoor for the rest of my stay in Srinagar. In the evening, I would stroll down the bridge to Lal Chowk for a meal in Ahdoos, or float away into the nearby kebab shop to have boti kebab with rotis. I walked into the local stores which were well stocked up and bought two jars of Kahwa (Kashmiri tea) for my grandmother. There were a taxi and scooter strike in the city for two days and I, as usual, walked my way through the town.
But the Taj experience tops it all and I really enjoyed it. Next afternoon, I was on board the Jet Flight to Delhi via Jammu, it took three hours. The first thing that hit me was the Delhi heat but the journey had been worth it.
