Dharamsala -> Punjab -> Kashmir

Today's adventure involved a trip from Dharamsala through Punjab to Kashmir.

The Kashmir international airport is a fortress... I kid you not. I am somewhat surprised that they allowed me to open my laptop (in theory I might get Internet access).

My cell phone doesn't work here either... like in Tokyo... though completely different.

In fact, Kashmir is about as opposite Tokyo as you can get.

What is weird about Kashmir? English everywhere. Completely alien in many ways... but still I can read all of the signs.

Our driver wasn't let into the compound, so we had to foot our ways through the crowd outside of the gate into the airport. The one guard who told me to not take pictures inside of the airport was nice about it.

Back to Delhi today, and on to Chennai. This was just a two day trip since we had no work to do over the weekend (ok... not entirely true... since I spent time hacking for a bit of it).

Dharamsala is as pretty and interesting as you might think it is. Photos to follow :)
