Mission Kashmir - Srinagar (Day 7)

The last day in Srinagar we decided to see what the city had to offer to the shoppers. And I must say it was quite a lot which made even reluctant shoppers like us actually buy things. There were lot of useful articles made from Walnut wood and Paper mache, the usual Kashmiri silk sarees and Pashmina shawls, varieties of wool, kashmiri kesar, dry fruits, etc...

We made a quick round of the Lal chowk area and Polo view. Gogo bought a Pashmina shawl for over 8000/= after a lot of double checking from Irfan's folks on the quality of pashmina. I must say it was a good buy. We also bought some kesar (Saffron), a few minitaure shikaras made of walnut wood, and some othe random wooden articles. We wennt back to the guest house after having lunch at a local pizza outlet. At the guest house we played cricket again with our new cool bat for a while. We ended the day by watching some television, and thinking we needed to pack our bags for our flight back home the next day.
