zvoidx: Oh, let the son beat down my face?
Arkanaut: Wasn't Robert Plant inspired to write the song after travelling to Morocco? He was only 3000 miles off or so.
Amish Tech Support: Nonsenses. I'm checked into the Hotel California right now. They have Wifi and great room service. I'm just having trouble checking out is all.
BMFPitt: Kathmandu is likewise not a place I want to go.
what the cat dragged in: There's good skiing to be had in Kashmir. I'm not kidding.I wanted to try to go there on the tail end of a trip I'm taking to Nepal later this year but I just don't quite have enough vacation built up for it./first world problems
sendtodave: Amish Tech Support: Nonsenses. I'm checked into the Hotel California right now. They have Wifi and great room service. I'm just having trouble checking out is all.Huh, it must have really gone downhill since I stayed there. I was able to check out any time I liked.
ElLoco: I can honestly say that I've never listened to that song and wanted to go there. I can't even think of a reason for wanting to go there outside of "I really need to inject a lot more stress and annoyance into my life for blogging material."But then I don't blog, so that settles that.
wingnut396: If going to Kashmir causes to write unintelligible, disjointed narrative I can understand wanting to stay away.
Ogre840: I'd rather take a train to Bangkok.../can't stand Kashmir since Diddy had his way with it//Why'd they let him do that?
Earguy: I love Led Zeppelin.But when I hear the chords and orchestration of Kashmir, what enters my mind is, "this is what is playing at the gates of Hell."
Green Scorpio: Earguy: I love Led Zeppelin.But when I hear the chords and orchestration of Kashmir, what enters my mind is, "this is what is playing at the gates of Hell."Those two statements define juxtaposition.
groppet: Is Shambala still cool to go to?
Earguy: Green Scorpio: Earguy: I love Led Zeppelin.But when I hear the chords and orchestration of Kashmir, what enters my mind is, "this is what is playing at the gates of Hell."Those two statements define juxtaposition.Not really. Considering Page's fascination with the Dark Arts, it might have been quite intentional.
Rik01: His narrative cheered me up a little bit because I'm so freaking tired of reading about Americans who absolutely, must vacation in some country right in the middle of a revolution, drop in to see the 'natives' when the place is all cheesed off at the USA and nearly everyone else and then get their butts in a sling.There was some freakin' dirt nation in Africa back in the 70's that was undergoing a revolution and genocide and young Americans flocked there full of indignation, convinced they could make a difference and determined to report back on the atrocities of the corrupt government.Some vanished. Some came back in body bags. At least one was recovered after his body was crammed and sealed up in a wall and the media had a field day. Smarter ones took one look at the insanity and bloodshed and headed right back home.Time and again, I've read about tourists getting shot up, having to be smuggled out of countries, being tossed in jail for almost anything and having to stay there for years as their nations worked to get them out.Personally, I choose not to go and visit some nation which is either on the verge of civil war or involved in one, to 'experience the local environment'. That can tend to get you killed and the majority of foreign prisons make US ones seem like kindergartens.
GoBadgers: What about the Marrakesh Express?
